Sanitary bin collection & disposal - how does it work?

Sanitary waste disposal bins can become unhygienic and pose a serious risk to health if they are not properly maintained.  Bacteria can survive on hard surfaces, which means poorly maintained sanitary bins can become breeding grounds for harmful bacteria. 

We work with you to arrange a frequency of waste collection, which can depend on the number of bins, how often they are used and the typical foot traffic at your premises.  With our liner service, the bin remains on site but is safely and efficiently sanitised to the same standards as they would be if they were taken off-site, to look fresh and clean before inputting a fresh bin liner into the unit ready for use.

All our sanitary bins include an e-card, a natural-based germicide, which is proven to kill 99.999% of germs and have excellent antimicrobial efficacy ‘in use’ for at least 6 weeks.  This reduces the levels of harmful bacteria in the actual units and helps to control odours.

Our Sanitary bins include an e-card, which is a natural anti-microbial product that eradicates bacteria that can enter and grow in a bin, while producing a pleasant fragrance in the surrounding environment. It protects operators and end users from any pathogenic bacteria and prevents any offensive odours from developing at the source.

Providing free pads and tampons isn’t just supporting a basic human right, it’s a small price to pay for the comfort and dignity of employees, customers, students and visitors to public washrooms. From stained clothes, to lost work time, public embarrassment and serious health risks, the cost of period inequity can be, quite literally, life-threatening.

This ensures that all legislation is followed including completion of documentation which must be kept for a minimum of two years after collection.
