Binny Bin Hero

Paul Adams

Facilities Officer, Directorate of Capital Planning and Facilities South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust

As a large NHS Trust, I have extensive knowledge regarding waste and sanitary waste is actually classed as 'offensive waste'. Legislation concerning waste is often misused to place pressure on organisations to use sanitary bin contractors but there is no legal requirement for any organisation to use these contractors. We have moved away from sanitary contactors and now use Binny disposable sanitary bins in all our toilets. I would encourage other organisations to review their use of contracts as Binny disposable sanitary bins have provided us with many advantages including carbon footprint reduction and improvement in service quality.
