What is Sanitary Waste?
Sanitary waste is a broad term usually used to refer either solid or liquid waste produced exclusively by human activity and feminine hygiene products used to absorb menstrual flow. An alternative name for this type of waste is offensive/hygiene waste. The word derives from its unappealing appearance and foul smell.
All businesses must offer proper bins for disposing of sanitary products in each female washroom, according to the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. This is in addition to the Water Industries Act of 1991, which says that no objects that could produce a build-up or obstruction in a sewage or drain system shall be flushed. If suitable sanitary dumpsters are not available, this may be the only option. Businesses also have a legal “duty of care” to properly and safely handle waste on their premises, up to the point of final disposal, under the Environmental Protection Act of 1990.
Sanitary Waste Disposal Telford
In the United Kingdom, there are a number of laws and regulations governing the disposal of offensive/hygiene waste, which could result in significant fines if offensive waste is not treated safely and effectively. The right segregation and storage of clinical waste is an important aspect of clinical waste legislation. This ensures that it is safely managed and disposed of, minimising the risk to persons and the environment.
Sanitary waste is expected to be separated from regular waste in designated containers. Used hygiene and surgical supplies frequently contain traces of body fluids and infectious germs that, if not adequately managed, can pose major health and environmental dangers. Insanitary waste receptacles can harbour diseases like HIV and Hepatitis B, thus waste management companies must handle them with caution and vigilance. If rain falls on untreated medical and sanitary waste in uncertified disposal sites, there is a considerable risk of groundwater contamination.
