Meeting the growing needs for waste management

Businesses have a duty of care to 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 are disposed of, in addition to personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks and disposable gloves.

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. Reducing the risk of cross-contamination from personal protective equipment (PPE) should be the priority for any business. PPE are not recyclable at conventional recycling facilities and should not be placed in multi-use bins. Initial has developed a safe and responsible waste removal service to keep your staff and customers protected, while avoiding incorrect or irresponsible disposal of PPE.

Introducing PPE Waste Bin 50L

Initial’s PPE waste bin is a hygienic, environmentally friendly, pedal-operated waste disposal solution for the responsible removal of face masks, gloves and other forms of PPE. Ergonomically designed for ease of use, it ensures PPE waste is handled separately to other waste streams. Our expert technicians will take care of collection, disposal and maintenance of the unit. Key features and benefits include:

  • no-touch, pedal-operated design reduces the risk of cross-contamination
  • PPE is separated from conventional recycling facilities to protect your people
  • a large, practical capacity of 50L reduces the number of collections required
  • PPE waste is handled in a safe, sensitive and environmentally friendly manner

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 integral anti-microbial coating which inhibits the growth of bacteria and the spread of germs.

Available for female, male and unisex washrooms, our waste management solutions provide users with a safe and discreet to dispose of AHPs
