Waste management and waste disposal solutions for your business

Our waste management solutions ensure waste is managed safely and hygienically to the point of disposal, while complying with legislative and environmental requirements.

Every year, millions of absorbent hygiene products (AHPs) such as nappies, personal care wipes, incontinence and feminine hygiene products need to be disposed of, in addition to personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks and disposable gloves.

Safe waste management for everyone

Businesses can help by providing facilities for the safe, discreet and hygienic disposal of waste products. As well as correct disposal units, clean and well-stocked handwashing and sanitising facilities are also incredibly important.

Enhancing the facilities on your premises with the correct waste management solutions can give your customers and staff confidence that their needs are being taken care of and that you meet social, environmental and legislative requirements.

Each unit features sleek, contemporary designs, and our FHUs are enhanced with an integral antimicrobial coating which inhibits the growth of bacteria and the spread of germs.
Available for male, female and unisex washrooms. Our waste management disposal solutions provide users with a safe and discreet disposal of AHPs.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) waste management

With attitudes to face masks changing around the world, a growing number of countries are making face coverings mandatory during the COVID-19 pandemic. Understandably, there has also been a rise in the number of people wearing disposable gloves.
