Installing Sanitation Systems

My name is Geoff and I am a proud Australian. When my wife and I retired and decided to build our dream home on the Gold Coast, it didn't cross our minds that this would lead to us becoming self-taught experts on sanitation systems. Our home appeared perfect when it was completed. However, after 6 months, we began to smell a foul odour rising from the floor. I called in a sanitation expert who said that the pipes which had been installed were not the right type. Thankfully, this problem was eventually fixed. I decided to start a new blog to advise others about the pros and cons of sanitation systems.

Top Tips to Promote Effective Use of Sanitary Waste Bins

Sanitary waste like feminine hygiene products and disposable baby nappies cannot be put in bins meant for general and green waste disposal. This is because the waste is considered to be unhygienic and therefore requires special disposal bins. Sanitary bins are specifically offered for hire to ensure proper disposal of sanitary waste. The use of these bins is commonplace in commercial and industrial areas where a large amount of sanitary waste is often produced. 

If you need to provide sanitary waste bins in your place of work and want to encourage people to use them, here are a number of crucial success tips you should follow. 

Location of the bins

Sanitary waste bins should be discreetly placed where people can access them without feeling like they are being watched by everyone. Whenever possible, the bins should be placed at the exact location where sanitary waste is produced. For example, it is ideal to place sanitary bins inside female bathrooms or toilets so that women can easily discard used sanitary towels, panty liners, tampons, or any other female hygiene products without feeling embarrassed. Likewise, it makes good sense placing the bins in hospital rooms or facilities meant for changing baby nappies, so that young mothers can have an easy time disposing of disposable baby nappies. 

Mode of operation

Nothing is as discouraging and irritating as providing bins for people to put in their waste only for them to end up throwing waste outside the bin or at some other unacceptable area. This often happens when users of sanitary waste bins do not want to touch the lid on your bins in order to discard their waste, as they think that the bins potentially carry disease-causing germs. 

A clever solution for this problem is to consider renting bins designed to allow for hands-free operation. For example, it would be a good idea to hire sanitary bins whose lids can be opened using foot pedals incorporated at the bottom part.


Sanitary waste can produce awful smells that can make it difficult for people to go anywhere near the bins where the waste has been put. For that reason, a lot of sanitary bin users will definitely appreciate a scented bin and stay away from one that produces foul odours. So, if you want to encourage people to make use of your bins, it would be a great idea to go for scented varieties.
