Do you know the legal regulations and acts with reference to the disposal of feminine hygiene waste?
Below are the legal regulations and acts with reference to the disposal of this waste.
- The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 specify that all companies are required to provide a suitable means for the disposal of sanitary dressings in ladies washrooms.
- The Water Industries Act 1991 also states that no items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within a sewer or drain.
- In addition, the Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal “duty of care” upon companies to ensure that all waste produced at their premises is correctly managed right up to the point of final disposal.
This also includes a responsibility to review your contractors.
We can supply you with a single feminine hygiene bin to as many as required for your premises that will include ”duty of care” certificates and all relevant documents to keep your company within these regulations and acts that includes a 4 weekly collection and disposal service.
