How do you dispose of Botox waste?

Disposing of Botox waste in the UK requires following specific procedures to ensure safety and compliance with relevant regulations. Here is a practical, step-by-step guide to managing Botox waste disposal:

1. Identify and Segregate Botox Waste

Types of Botox Waste:

  • Unused Botox: Expired or contaminated vials.
  • Used Vials and Ampoules: Containers that held Botox but are now empty.
  • Sharps: Needles and syringes used for administering Botox.


  • Sharps: Place used needles and syringes in a yellow sharps container with a purple lid, which is designated for pharmaceutical waste including cytotoxic and cytostatic medicines.
  • Unused Botox and Empty Vials: Place these in a yellow pharmaceutical waste bin with a blue lid, which is used for non-cytotoxic and non-cytostatic pharmaceuticals.

2. Use Approved Containers

Sharps Containers:

  • Must be puncture-resistant and leak-proof.
  • Should be clearly labelled with the type of waste and biohazard symbols.

Pharmaceutical Waste Bins:

  • Should be rigid, leak-proof, and clearly labelled.
  • Must comply with British Standard BS 7320 for the safe containment of waste.

3. Storage Before Disposal

  • Secure Location: Store waste in a designated, secure area away from public access.
  • Temperature Control: Ensure storage areas are kept at appropriate temperatures to prevent degradation of the waste materials.
  • Segregation: Keep Botox waste separate from other types of waste to prevent contamination.

4. Documentation and Tracking

Consignment Notes:

  • Complete a consignment note for hazardous waste. This includes details such as the type of waste, quantity, and date of transfer.

Record Keeping:

5. Collection by Licensed Waste Carrier

Selecting a Waste Carrier:

Scheduling Collections:

  • Arrange regular collections to prevent the build-up of waste.
  • Ensure the waste is collected in sealed containers to prevent leaks and spills during transportation.

6. Disposal at Authorised Facilities


  • Botox waste should be incinerated at a facility licensed to handle pharmaceutical waste.
  • Incineration ensures complete destruction of the waste, eliminating any risk of contamination or misuse.

7. Compliance with Regulations

Key Regulations:

Practical Steps for Businesses

  • Training Staff: Ensure all staff handling Botox waste are trained in proper segregation, handling, and disposal procedures.
  • Regular Audits: Conduct regular audits of your waste management processes to ensure compliance and identify areas for improvement.
  • Consultation: Work with your waste management provider to ensure you are following best practices and staying compliant with all relevant regulations.

Managing Botox waste requires careful adherence to legal requirements and practical procedures to ensure safety and compliance. By following the steps outlined above, businesses can effectively manage the disposal of Botox waste, minimising risks and meeting all regulatory obligations.
