The Dangers Of Sanitary Waste

The failure to provide a hygienic means for feminine waste disposal in a restroom can force your customers to flush tampons and pads, resulting in clogged and overflowing toilets. Others may simply walk out of your restroom in disgust and possibly leave your facility altogether!

It is serious business choosing a disposal method for sanitary waste, as exposure to potentially harmful blood borne pathogens such as Hepatitis B and HIV is a real concern. Maintaining the integrity of your sewage system and keeping up with all the necessary requirements in providing a positive restroom experience for your female users are also important to keep in mind.

Unfortunately, not all sanitary disposal receptacles are effective and easy to maintain which makes compliance with OSHA regulations difficult at best. Protecting maintenance personnel from occupational exposure to blood and bodily fluids as well as eliminating the risk of cross-contamination for the users are both priorities in promoting a safe and sanitary restroom environment.
