The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 specify that all companies are required to provide a suitable means for the disposal of sanitary dressings in ladies washrooms.
The Water Industries Act 1991 also states that no items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within a sewer or a drain.
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal 'duty of care' upon companies to ensure that all waste produced at their premises is correctly managed right up to the point of final disposal.
The transportation of category E sanitary waste needs to be undertaken by a company such as ours that holds a current Waste Carriers Licence issued by the Environment Agency. Prestige Hygiene will provide you with the legally required Waste Transfer Documentation free of charge!
We've been using Prestige Hygiene Services for many years, and have always found their service to be reliable, prompt and super-efficient. I'd have no hesitation in recommending them.
