    How should I store lateral flow test waste?

    Government legislation dictates any waste that derives from lateral flow tests used to detect COVID-19 (including the PPE used by staff administering the tests) in a business or organisation setting (for example in a school or university) cannot be placed in general waste or mixed recycling.

    Instead, the waste must be segregated out into dedicated containers/sacks and sent for specialist disposal by a licensed waste management provider, such as Grundon.

    The test kits and PPE must be stored separately.

    The test kits should be placed in a bag of neutral colour and placed in a dedicated container ready for collection.
