Sanitary Waste - You and the Law

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations) 1992 Approved Code of Practice Regulation 21 states that "In the case of water closets used by women suitable means should be provided for the disposal of sanitary dressings."

In addition to this, the Water Industries Act 1991 states that no items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within a sewer or drain.

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal obligation - Duty of Care, upon you and your organisation to ensure that all waste produced is managed correctly right up until its final point of disposal.

In the case of sanitary waste the following applies:
  • Your waste must only be removed by a registered carrier
  • The waste must be disposed of at a licensed landfill site or incineration facility
  • A full audit trail of documentation must be in place and kept for a minimum of 2 years
