Sanitary waste is a type of “offensive/hygiene waste” due to the idea that it can be offensive in appearance and smell, and it is the product of a population that is not infectious. Handling sanitary waste poses a residual health risk, which should be assessed and precautions implemented. However, as long as the waste is appropriately wrapped, handled in accordance with regulations, and free of residual liquids, the risk to human health is found to be low.

Management of Sanitary Waste

How do you get rid of your sanitary waste?

Sanitary waste disposal is strictly regulated and governed by legislation to ensure that it is disposed of in a safe and sanitary manner that corresponds to the level of risk it poses to human health. According to the Workplace (Health, Safety, and Welfare) Regulations 1992, all organizations should provide a suitable method for disposing of sanitary waste in their female toilets. The Water Industries Act of 1991 backs this up, stating that no sanitary waste should be flushed away that could cause blockages or problems with the sewers or drainage system. The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 imposes a Duty of Care on any organization that generates, disposes of, or stores “governed” waste, including eliminación de residuos sanitarios. All of this adds up to the prudent provision of clean and safe feminine hygiene bins, which aids in the prevention of damage.

During menstruation, women are usually barred from visiting religious sites and from engaging in other activities such as cooking and eating certain foods, more as a perpetuation of outdated social practices but with no scientific backing. Due to social pressure and a lack of menstrual hygiene resources, many girls choose to skip school until their periods are over. In fact, there are several schools where separate toilets for girls are either non-existent or in disrepair. Such social stigma is a major impediment to achieving the lofty goal of gender equality, and it also has an impact on society’s overall development. With rapid urbanization, product availability and distribution, access to various options, increased mobility, menstrual hygiene awareness, and consistent government efforts, the use of disposable sanitary napkins is rapidly increasing.
