What is Sanitary Waste? 

Essentially, sanitary waste is a blood product or bodily fluids. It is all the discarded items or products people use for their bodily fluids, for example, a pad or a tampon for menstruation blood, a used sanitary panty liner, catheter, and stoma bags, condoms, or nasal secretions.

This kind of waste is also known as offensive/ hygiene waste. The term stems from its distasteful appearance and rancid smell.

Sanitary hygiene has been a subject not given much thought to in commercial settings. More often than not, businesses lack sanitary bins to dispose of sanitary waste, forcing women to either flash them the toilet or carry them back home. With more education around this subject, businesses grew aware of sanitary waste management. 

Though at home you can mix your sanitary waste to be collected with all your other rubbish, in the business setting, sanitary waste must be kept separate. According to The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulation 1992, all businesses are required to provide sanitary bins in every toilet. To ensure your business complies with this regulation, contact us and we will provide you with a free sanitary bin or sani bin.

I disposed of carelessly, it will impact the environment negatively which may lead to some heavy fines for your business.
