On-site servicing for washroom waste & sanitation

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Our waste management services have been engineered to save water, fuel and materials- leading to more sustainable & green services to protect Singapore without compromising our high service standards.

Singapore is moving towards strict net zero emissions by 2050 with the introduction of regulations that impact several sectors, including the Hotel Sustainability Roadmap by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB). With water conservation & waste management as the key focus areas, washroom waste management is an often overlooked area where companies could make a positive change. Initial’s On-Site Servicing (OSS) solutions offer companies the opportunity to switch to more sustainable operations without compromising on hygiene or service quality.

An effective feminine hygiene solution is a vital part of the facilities for women using your premises. 

The standard of service you provide reflects on your organisation. An excellent level of hygiene demonstrates care; poor hygiene infers the opposite. As hygiene experts, we understand the importance of delivering the highest possible standards in this essential service for the comfort of all users. That’s why we offer OSS - combining the highest quality feminine hygiene units with a comprehensive and discreet service.

What are the steps to ensure toilet hygiene?

Maintaining toilet hygiene is essential for preventing the spread of germs and ensuring a safe and healthy environment for users. Here are some steps to ensure toilet hygiene:

  1. Toilets should be cleaned and disinfected regularly to prevent the buildup of bacteria and germs. Use a toilet bowl cleaner to remove any stains or buildup in the bowl and a disinfectant spray or wipe to clean the toilet surfaces, including the seat, lid, and handle.
  2. Encourage users to practice good hand hygiene by washing their hands with soap and water after using the toilet. Provide a reliable supply of soap and paper towels or hand dryers for users to dry their hands.
  3. Providing toilet seat sanitisers can help promote toilet hygiene, allowing users to sanitise the toilet seat before use. When flushed, the toilet sneeze effect refers to releasing microscopic particles, including 1,000 droplets and aerosolised particles, into the air. These particles can contain bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus, and potentially infect other users or contaminate surfaces in the bathroom.
  4. Ensure that toilet paper, soap, and other supplies are always available in the toilet. Restock supplies regularly to prevent shortages and avoid users using alternatives such as tissue paper or paper towels, which can cause blockages in the toilet.
  5. Provide an appropriate waste bin for users to dispose of sanitary products, diapers, and other waste. Please make sure that the bin is emptied regularly and disposed of properly.
  6. Ensure the toilet is well-ventilated to reduce the buildup of odours and humidity. Provide adequate ventilation, such as an exhaust fan or an open window.
  7. Inspect the toilet to identify any maintenance or hygiene issues that must be addressed. This could include checking for leaks or clogs, ensuring that all equipment is functioning correctly, and monitoring the cleanliness and hygiene of the toilet.

These steps help maintain toilet hygiene and promote a safe and healthy user environment.

What is the importance of toilet hygiene?

Toilet hygiene is important for several reasons, including:

  1. Preventing the spread of diseases: Bacteria, viruses, and other germs can be present in toilets and can spread easily through contact with contaminated surfaces or by inhaling airborne particles. Regular cleaning and disinfecting of toilets can help prevent the spread of diseases, including gastroenteritis, hepatitis A, and respiratory infections.
  2. Reducing bad odours: Poor toilet hygiene can result in bad odours that can be unpleasant and embarrassing for users. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help reduce odours and create a more pleasant environment for users.
  3. Ensuring user comfort and satisfaction: A clean, well-maintained toilet is more comfortable and satisfying. This can help create a positive impression of the facility and improve user experience.
  4. Promoting workplace health and safety: Poor toilet hygiene can create health and safety hazards for employees. For example, blocked or overflowing toilets can lead to slips and falls, while poor ventilation can cause respiratory problems.
  5. Maintaining facility standards: In certain industries, such as hospitality or healthcare, maintaining high standards of hygiene and cleanliness is critical for meeting regulatory requirements and maintaining reputation.

Overall, toilet hygiene is important for maintaining a safe and healthy user environment, promoting user satisfaction and comfort, and meeting regulatory requirements in certain industries.

How do you dispose of feminine hygiene waste?

Feminine hygiene waste, such as sanitary pads and tampons, should be disposed of hygienically and responsibly to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. Here are some steps for the proper disposal of feminine hygiene waste:

  1. Wrap the used feminine hygiene product in toilet paper or the packaging to contain any fluids or odours.
  2. Place the wrapped product in a designated sanitary bin or bag. These bins are designed to dispose of feminine hygiene waste and are typically found in public washrooms, schools, or workplaces. A plastic bag can be used if a designated bin is unavailable.
  3. Seal the sanitary bin or bag securely and dispose of it in a waste bin or dumpster designated for sanitary waste.
  4. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling feminine hygiene waste.

It is important to note that feminine hygiene products should not be flushed down the toilet, as they can cause blockages in pipes and sewage systems. Following proper disposal, procedures can help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria and promote good hygiene practices.

Can anyone empty the sanitary bin?

This task is generally recommended to professional hygiene service providers with the appropriate training and equipment to handle and dispose of sanitary waste safely and hygienically. Professional hygiene service providers, such as Initial Hygiene, offer on-site sanitary disposal services designed to provide a safe and hygienic way to dispose of feminine hygiene waste.

What is sanitary disposal system?

A sanitary disposal system typically includes a specially designed bin that is lined with a biodegradable liner, which is replaced at regular intervals by the hygiene service provider.

The bin is typically touchless to avoid contact with hands, and the lid is designed to prevent unpleasant odours or leakage. Once the bin is full, the hygiene service provider collects the waste and replaces the liner with a fresh one, ensuring that the waste is disposed of safely and hygienically.

Professional hygiene service providers follow strict guidelines and regulations regarding the handling and disposal of sanitary waste, ensuring that it is disposed of in a way that minimises the risk of infection and environmental pollution. Using a professional sanitary disposal system, you can ensure that feminine hygiene waste is disposed of safely and hygienically, promoting good hygiene practices and reducing the risk of infection.
