What is Sanitary Waste?

Because they contain biological fluids, menstrual waste (used pantyliners, sanitary pads, and tampons), along with condoms, syringes, diapers, cotton, and bandages, is classified as sanitary waste. All businesses are required to have sanitary waste bins because the needs, preferences, and patterns and experiences of men and women regarding sanitation differ. The restroom is also used by women to manage their menstruation cycle and to do this, they will need to have sanitary waste bins. At Wakefield Waste, we provide free sanitary waste bins as well as waste collections in Wakefield and across all of the United Kingdom. Arrangements for low cost collection and free bins can be made by calling 01924 637 510 now. 

Sanitary waste originates from non-infectious population groups and is often called “offensive/hygiene waste” (for its objectionable appearance and smell). Health risks associated with handling sanitary waste need to be evaluated, and appropriate safeguards need to be put in place. If the trash is adequately packaged, handled according to standards, and is devoid of residual liquid, the risk to human health is low. As long as sanitary waste is not infectious and does not require specific treatment or disposal procedures, it is not classified as hazardous, special, or clinical waste under UK environmental regulation.

Sanitary Waste Disposal Wakefield

Sanitary waste disposal is heavily controlled and managed by UK legislation to ensure that it is disposed of in a safe and hygienic manner that is proportional to the risk it poses to human health. Companies aren’t always sure what constitutes sanitary waste or what doesn’t. Furthermore, whether the waste is dangerous. Before selecting the proper treatment and/or disposal strategy, all waste is sorted and analysed. We make sure that significant amounts of sanitary waste are properly contained and identified before being disposed of. 

Only licensed facilities capable of safe handling and disposal should process offensive/hygiene waste. All female and unisex toilets should have bins to dispose of feminine products for female visitors and employees. You should avoid flushing sanitary products down toilets as this can clog sewage lines at treatment plants and result in pollution of the environment and sea. You should also be aware that liquid sanitary waste cannot be disposed of in a landfill and must instead be disposed of through the sewage system.

Each type of waste needs to have a receptacle that is coloured. Colour-coding provides a quick, easy, and clear way of identifying and segregating waste that we are handling or will treat. A containment tank is required for large volumes of liquid infectious wastes that must be contained in tightly closed containers. Solid or semi-solid waste should be disposed of in strong plastic bags that are tear-resistant. Moreover, in order to burn products, special packaging must be used.
