Waste management for home patients

Minimising waste in the home dialysis setting comes down to some simple common sense thinking.

While it is difficult to recycle things like dialysers and blood lines in the home setting, it is possible to recycle dialysate bottles, saline bags, cardboard boxes and packaging from dialysis supplies.

Consider putting these into your recycling stream for your local council to collect.

Providing there is no visible blood, these products can be recycled without question.
