Why Every Business Needs Sanitary Bins

Having sanitary bins in any washroom is a necessity for hygiene purposes. Whether you run a restaurant, own a small business, manage an office or maintain an entire shopping centre, products for sanitary disposal such as sanitary bins are a must in all facilities.

Why do Businesses Need Sanitary Bins?

Sanitary bins are placed in bathrooms for individuals to safely dispose of their hygiene products in public, business and commercial establishments. This discrete method allows items to be disposed of conveniently and safely.

It is a law according to Safe Work Australia that all patrons must be provided with hygienic means to dispose of sanitary waste such as a sanitary bin. The text does not explicitly refer to sanitary bins however, this implies that it is the employer’s duty of care to provide adequate washroom services including the necessary disposal bins required.

So no matter the size of business or establishment you’re running, it is your responsibility to make sure all workers and guests can safely access sanitary bins in the washrooms.
