Waste Disposal Service

House Services are responsible foir the procurement and management of the feminine hygiene contract.

In most cases the contractor provides your washroom cubicles with a sanitary disposal bin. In some areas the bin is provided within the washroom itself and sanitary bags are available within the cubicles.

A fully trained service engineer will perform a regular scheduled visit to remove any feminine hygiene waste ensuring a consistantly high level of hygiene is maintained within the washroom.

To comply with UK legislation a waste transfer certificate is provided at the end of each service.

If you have any concerns about the frequecny of service please contact your relevant building supervisor.
