The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 specify that all companies are required to provide a suitable means for the disposal of sanitary dressings in ladies washrooms.
The Water Industries Act 1991 also states that no items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within a sewer or a drain.
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal 'duty of care' upon companies to ensure that all waste produced at their premises is correctly managed right up to the point of final disposal.
The transportation of category E sanitary waste needs to be undertaken by a company such as ours that holds a current Waste Carriers Licence issued by the Environment Agency.
Prestige Hygiene will provide you with the legally required Waste Transfer Documentation free of charge!
According to a survey carried out in 2017, almost half of girls in the UK were absent from school due to periods and one in ten women aged 14 to 21 were unable to afford sanitary products. Houghton believes that having access to sanitary products helps girls feel "comfortable" to participate in daily activities, urging for an end to period poverty. The role model has teamed up with feminine care brand Always to raise awareness of period poverty in the UK. By the end of September 2019, Always and Tampax will donate one product to those suffering for every sanitary pack they sell. This is positive news and we look forward to hearing about more support for this cause. .
