Binny™ sanitary bins comply with legislation
There is a considerable amount of mis-information concerning sanitary bin disposal and waste. Binny™ sanitary bins fulfil the requirements and guidance laid down by the Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency (EA) and the Department of Health (see our pages on “Use and Regs“)
Binny’s™ sanitary bins’ unique design addresses any concerns around handling sanitary waste;
i) Unlike traditional sanitary bins, the contents of Binny™ sanitary bins are never seen or handled by your cleaning staff (click here for further information)
ii) Binny™ sanitary bins have world leading antibacterial properties (certified to ISO20743:2013) along with a specially designed maladour blocker/fragrance (see below).
Binny™ sanitary bins significantly reduce your carbon footprint
External sanitary bin contract companies have a large carbon footprint. Their fleets of vans cover thousands of miles each day servicing sanitary bins. Binny™ disposable sanitary bins are manufactured in the UK and the carbon footprint is very low – one delivery of a 6/12 month supply of flat pack Binny™ sanitary bins replaces multiple trips from a sanitary bin supplier.
The Department of Health has clearly stated that sanitary bin waste (as well as incontinence pads, nappies etc) are not clinical/infectious waste and should be correctly classed as offensive waste. The DOH further states that classifying waste correctly provides “one of the biggest opportunities to reduce wasted energy used in unnecessary treatment of non-infectious wastes and potentially introduces significant cost savings.” Your organisation can help reduce wasted energy and reduce your carbon impact by simply switching to Binny™ sanitary bins.
Binny™ sanitary bins reduce costs
Why pay a contractor for a virtually empty sanitary bin to be emptied? Most commercial sanitary bins are under-utilised (the average weight per collection is only 300g of sanitary waste) but you only replace Binny™ when full and due to Binny’s™ anti-bacterial properties, Binny™ sanitary bins can remain in situ for many months if required. Furthermore, there are also numerous indirect costs with sanitary bin contracts e.g. salesperson visits, contractual negotiations, time spent sorting out additional visits if a bin becomes full etc. Organisations report savings of upto 70% when compared to sanitary bin contracts.
Binny™ sanitary bins remove the need for sanitary bin suppliers and contracts
This classification is very important and means your organisation can dispose of sanitary (feminine) waste easily, legally and simply by using Binny™ sanitary disposal bins and your organisation does not need to use a sanitary bin supplier or sign up to any contracts. As a result, many organisations, including NHS Hospital Trusts, have switched over to using Binny™. Simply re-order more disposable Binnys™ when required – no contracts, no long term commitment, no pressure.
Binny™ sanitary bins are environmentally responsible
Sanitary bins suppliers usually either collect sanitary waste by removing the contents in a plastic bag or the whole bin is removed and replaced. Where a bag is removed, this is contrary to the government’s aim is to reduce the use of plastic bags. Where the whole bin is collected, this is energy intensive as the bins are washed offsite with water and chemicals and are then returned. A high energy intensive process.
- Binny™ sanitary bins are managed by your cleaners and disposed of in your current waste collection so Binny™ eradicates the above.
- Binny™ is made of cardboard
- Binny™ does not use plastic bags and therefore helps reduce the number of plastic bags that end up in landfill
- Binny™ is disposed of along with the contents and therefore saves on water and chemicals as requires no cleaning
Binny™ sanitary bins improve your toilet facilities – sanitary disposal
Sanitary bins are filled at different rates but sanitary bin contractors work around their timescales e.g. a monthly collection. What happens if you have a full bin and a contracted collection is not scheduled for another 2 weeks? Our sanitary disposal bins allows your cleaner to immediately replace a full bin and if Binny™ is not full then it can be left in situ for months. This improves your facilities and makes it easier for your organisation to manage the issue of sanitary bin disposal as well as providing a better environment for your staff, customers and visitors.
