Alternative to plastic bags in healthcare?!?

I suggested only using them when there is a high risk or visible fluids. What other options are there? Is there an alternative that isn’t as wasteful... show more I am an X-ray tech at a large hospital.

What other options are there? Is there an alternative that isn’t as wasteful and better for the environment?

All ideas welcome :)
