What is the Liner System?
We provide our customers with the liner system when they take out a sanitary waste disposal service with us, which means a minimal amount of disruption to your business.
The liner system is a discreet service which is undertaken within the toilet cubical, using a liner within the sanitary bin which collects all of the waste. This also means that you will always have the same bin giving you peace of mind knowing that it has only ever been with you.
All of the sanitary bins have a bactericidal chemical deposited into them, which effectively reduces any odours.
The unit is cleaned and sanitised thoroughly by our staff, and the waste is removed discreetly and disposed of correctly via our fully compliant waste transfer vehicles.
Our liner system means minimal disruption to your business, granular bactericide reduces unpleasant odours and waste is discreetly removed.
How does the service work?
Our expert operatives will come and install the sanitary bins where ever they are needed. Your units can then be serviced as often as you require, such as weekly, two weekly or four weekly - according to your usage.
We clean and deodorise your units with each service, and dispose of the waste discreetly without removing the bin. This avoids dragging your bin and its waste through your property for people to see or smell.
We allocate every site to one service operative, which means that you will (aside from annual leave and illness) always get the same operative servicing your units. We find that this makes the experience better for our customers, and our operatives won’t have to ask you where your units are when they come to service them.
At Janitorial Direct, we pride ourselves on our service and are always striving to improve. All of our operatives and well-trained and CRB-checked.
How often should sanitary bins be emptied?
As a business, you are legally required to adhere to waste disposal regulations and duty of care to visitors and employees. Therefore, sanitary bins must be emptied and sanitised on a regular basis to prevent bacteria build-up from used sanitary products.
It depends on the number of visitors to your washrooms, but Janitorial Direct will empty and clean bins on either a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.
Can cleaners change sanitary bins?
Sanitary waste is highly regulated, and this controlled waste can only be transferred with a carrier that is registered with the Environment Agency.
To be compliant with certain legislation and duty of care, sanitary waste must only be handled by a trained and licensed hazardous waste operative. Company employees, such as cleaners, must not be held responsible for handling sanitary waste.
Our operatives undergo specialist training to remain compliant and handle the procedure from start to finish, from waste removal to unit sanitation.
Do I need to provide sanitary bins?
Businesses in the UK are required to provide suitable facilities in female washrooms for disposing of sanitary products, as set out in The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
As per The Water Industries Act 1991, no items should be flushed that may cause a blockage which can be a serious risk if no sanitary bin is provided. Finally, the Environmental Protection Act 1990, states that businesses have a legal duty of care to manage waste on their premises up to the point of disposal.
Businesses that do not adhere to legislation may face fines, so ensure you are caring for your female employees and maintaining your duty of care by providing the correct means of waste disposal.
Is sanitary bin waste hazardous?
Sanitary bin waste is not technically classified as hazardous waste under UK legislation, but it is defined as offensive waste. Nonetheless, it must still be carefully handled due to the risk associated with bodily fluids and blood.
