> Does this mean it is possible that some portion of blood collected from "blood donation programs" goes waste?


For any system which regularly collects some resource and distributes it somewhere else, some amount of that resource goes to waste. It is impossible to absolutely eliminate this. Therefore, all resource-distribution systems expect some level of waste.

This reads like you're unsubtly telling OP "your question is dumb" while also not answering the real (intriguing, nuanced) underlying question.

I don't intend to tell OP that their question is dumb. But I am definitely completely missing the underlying question if there is one.
