The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulation 1992
recommends that businesses provide all female toilets with a suitable method for disposing of sanitary waste.
Additionally, The Water Industries Act 1991 stipulates that no sanitary waste is to be flushed away as it can damage sewers and drains. Coupled with The Environmental Protection Act 1990, which imposes a Duty of Care on organisations that produce controlled waste including sanitary waste, it becomes clear that dealing with this waste requires proper facilities.
All three of The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulation 1992, The Water Industries Act 1991 and The Environmental Protection Act 1990 impose various guidelines on businesses that make sanitary bins necessary.
The Environmental Act 1990 places a 'Duty Of Care' on anyone who produces, collects, treats and disposes of waste.
