Emptying and disposing of your used stoma bag
The method of emptying and disposing varies according to the type of stoma bags that you use:
Drainable and urostomy bags
Empty the contents of your stoma bag into the toilet, then place the used pouch and swabs in the disposal bag. Seal the bag and put into the domestic refuse bin, then wash your hands.
You can either cut the stoma bag and empty contents into the toilet before disposal or you can put the pouch, along with contents and any swabs, into the disposal bag. Seal the bag and put into the domestic refuse bin and then wash your hands.
If you are using Aura Flushable, you can flush the inner liner and flange in domestic toilets, septic tanks and single flush siphonic systems, meaning you only dispose of the clean outer pouch in the bin.
