The Risks Associated with Sanitary Napkin Receptacles
The traditional Sanitary Napkin Receptacle poses many risks for women in public restrooms. Soiled tampons and sanitary napkins may contain blood borne pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis. Typical plastic or metal Sanitary Napkin Receptacles requires women touch the receptacle in order to open and dispose of sanitary waste.
As a result, the risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens left behind by other restroom users is escalated. WellBeing’s alternative touch-free bin significantly decreases the risk of cross contamination from user to user while disposing tampons and sanitary napkins.
WellBeing’s touch-less bin provides a courtesy flap so ladies do not see or touch any sanitary waste previously disposed. Also, a biodegradable bacterial growth inhibitor effective against pathogens like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV, is placed inside each bin by WellBeing Service Technicians. Each bin is removed from the restroom to be cleaned and by an EPA registered and approved bactericide before being returned to the premises.
