Sanitary Waste Disposal Legislation
Sanitary bin collection and the disposal of sanitary waste in the UK is overseen by legislation. Businesses must provide all-female toilets with a suitable method for sanitary waste disposal, The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulation 1992.
Furthermore, no sanitary waste is to be flushed away as it can damage sewers and drains, The Water Industries Act 1991. The Environmental Protection Act 1990, which enforces a Duty of Care on organisations that produce controlled waste including sanitary waste. It is clear that dealing with this waste requires proper facilities.
What is a Sanitary Waste Bin?
A female sanitary disposal unit is a simple yet discreet waste container found mainly in the female toilets. The sanitary waste containers allow for the hygienic disposal of all feminine hygiene products.
The bins should be fully enclosed so that the user cannot view any waste contained within the bin. Hygienic Concepts provide sanitary bins with a modesty chute and foot pedal operation to reduce cross-contamination and the point of disposal.
All of our waste container liners incorporate Invizi-Touch® antimicrobial silver ion protection & odour eliminating technology, to prevent germ build-up and any malodours from entering the washroom facilities.
