About the 28-Litre Sanitary Bin – Hand Operated

The 28-Litre Sanitary Bin With Hand Operation 

Wybone sanitary bins are purpose-made for the safe and effective collection of sanitary products and feminine waste. This 28-litre unit is made from galvanised steel, offering excellent durability with rust and corrosion-resistant qualities. This sanitary bin is also fire retardant according to HTM05-03 Regulations.

With the hand-operated bin, you use the smooth ‘lip’ handle which forms the lid of the bin. This allows you, by hand, to deposit waste in the chute which also hides existing contents inside the unit. But if you’d rather have a foot pedal to open the chute, we have you covered. Emptying this sanitary bin has never been easier – simply recline the chute lid which will allow you to remove the bag inside.

The entirety of this sanitary bin is powder coated using silver ion antimicrobial technology. This prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.

This 28-litre unit comes with a white body and yellow lid as per clinical waste requirements. But for bathrooms outside of the healthcare premises, you can customise your sanitary bin with a range of different lids and body colours. Get in touch to let us know what you need.

Looking for a larger unit? Our sanitary bins also come in 42 litres and 80 litres. We also do a slimline version of this bin.

Did you know there are legal requirements for sanitary bins?

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 (Section 34) states that every waste producer has a responsibility to ensure that all sanitary waste is handled properly from storage on-site to collection and disposal.

In addition, the Water Industries Act 1991 stipulates that no sanitary waste shall be flushed down a toilet, to reduce the risk of preventable blockages.

Businesses, shopping centres, public areas and workplaces or any place with females present (or female visitors) must all be guided by the Duty of Care Regulations 1991. This stipulates that suitable means of disposing of sanitary waste must be provided.
