Why us

Sanitary bin collection service

Whether you’re running a bustling office, a small shop, or anything in between, you’ve got a responsibility to keep your space clean and your staff happy.

It’s a legal requirement in many places to provide proper sanitary bins in your workplace. These bins give your employees a clean and hygienic place to toss their sanitary waste. But it’s not just about having the bins; it’s also about making sure they’re managed, collected, and disposed of correctly.

Flushing sanitary products can lead to blockages, plumbing problems, and sewer headaches. No one wants that, right? By keeping sanitary waste separate, we can make sure it’s disposed of properly. That often means it gets incinerated rather than piling up in a landfill, and that can save your business some money on landfill taxes.

Our team is here to help you figure out the right number, size, and schedule for your sanitary disposal bins.

What are the different types of sanitary waste?

Sanitary bins can accommodate liquid or solid waste originating from humans or animals, which might include:

  • Nappies
  • Incontinence pads
  • Nasal secretions
  • Condoms
  • Non-healthcare waste (like waste from piercings)

So, whether you're dealing with a busy office or a healthcare facility, our sanitary bins can take care of it all.

What happens to sanitary waste?
From tampons to incontinence pads, there’s one thing these waste types have in common. Plastic. Now, while plastic can often be recycled on its own, sanitary waste is a different story. Its intricate mix of materials, coupled with health considerations, makes recycling a bit of a challenge. As a result, a significant portion of sanitary waste usually ends up in landfills. We try to make sure your waste is transported to a facility for disposal in the safest and most environmentally friendly way possible. Incineration not only removes the health risks associated with sanitary waste but also prevents those risks from being left in landfills. However, we're mindful of the environmental impact too. Incineration can release gases and toxic fumes, contributing to air pollution. So, our commitment is to handle your waste with utmost care and responsibility.
Is it mandatory to have sanitary bins in our workplace?
Yes, in many places, it's a legal requirement to provide sanitary bins in the workplace, particularly in bathrooms used by female employees. This is to ensure a clean and hygienic way to dispose of sanitary waste.
How often should we have our sanitary waste collected?
The collection frequency can vary depending on your needs. Typically, it can be arranged daily, weekly, or fortnightly but monthly is most common. Our team can help you determine the right schedule based on your business's specific requirements.
What types of sanitary waste can be disposed of in the bins?
Sanitary bins are primarily used for feminine hygiene products like pads and tampons. However, they can also handle other sanitary waste, such as nappies, incontinence pads, nasal secretions, condoms, and non-healthcare waste.
Is sanitary waste recycling possible?
Sanitary waste, due to its complex mix of materials and health concerns, is generally challenging to recycle. An alternative to prevent it from going to landfill is incineration, which we handle in an environmentally responsible manner.
Do you provide sanitary waste services nationwide?
Yes, we offer our sanitary waste management services throughout the UK.
