Sanitary Waste Disposal Service

Sanitary Waste Disposal Compliance

Providing your female bathroom visitors with a discreet and hygienic way to dispose of feminine hygiene waste is a vital consideration for the provision of a clean and pleasant bathroom environment.

The National Regulations on health care risk waste (NEMWA, act 59 of 2008) require that a company such as Rentokil Initial must demonstrate the safe management of the health care risk waste. The safe disposal of feminine hygiene waste is furthermore essential to ensure your business complies with The Occupational Health & Safety Act, 85 of 1993 and The National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 59 of 2008.

Safe Disposal of Sanitary Waste

Initial Hygiene's sanitary waste disposal service helps you dispose of feminine hygiene waste in a safe, sensitive and environmentally friendly manner. Our Sanitact Green formulation as well as our bio-degradable sanitary bin liners are focused to reduce carbon footprint, whilst ensuring an anti-bacterial and hygiene sanitary solution is provided.

The sanitary waste disposal service provides your toilet cubicles with one of Initial Hygiene's manual, or ultra hygienic automatic, No Touch sanitary bins. Available in two different sizes to suit your requirements, the bins are designed to fit neatly alongside the toilet, offering added visitor comfort.

A waste transfer certificate is available, which is necessary for your business’ compliance with South African legislation. The sanitary waste disposal service offers peace of mind, and ensures you are providing a professional feminine hygiene service for your female visitors.

A feminine hygiene service providing you with 5 layers of protection

5 Layers of Protection

PLUS by Initial (Protective Layered Unique Service) exclusive to our Signature range, is our advanced Feminine hygiene service that raises the standard of hygiene by:

  • Reducing the presence of E coli
  • Reducing bacteria levels in the cubicle
  • Reducing the risk of cross contamination
  • Reducing damages, scrapes and scratches on your feminine hygiene unit

"En-Chem Consultants cc can readily endorse the Plus by Initial Service to the Client of Rentokil Initial in South Africa as providing a higher level of protection than would be afforded by a service offering only a single barrier of protection." 

- Dr David A. Baldwin


PLUS by Initial is guaranteed to:

  • Further reduce the risk of cross-contamination as your sanitary bin remains on your premises
  • Inhibit the growth of bacteria within the unit through the use of an effective anti-bacterial preparation
  • Further inhibit the growth of bacteria within the unit through use of protective liners containing anti-bacterial agents
  • Inhibit odour through use of scented liners and the use of natural plant and mineral essential oil odour neutralising granules
  • Kill bacteria on the exterior of the sanitary bin unit and prevent germs from spreading with the use of our anti-bacterial sanitising solution

We've listened to our customers, you told us that:

  • You prefer your feminine hygiene units to remain on your premises so you know exactly where it has been.
  • You want a sanitary bin that doesn’t get scratched or damaged in transit.
  • You want your unit to look newer for longer and the risk of cross contamination reduced.
  • You also want the highest levels of hygiene.
  • PLUS by Initial Sandwich

We've provided all of this by adding additional layers of protection found in our anti-bacterial liners and the anti-bacterial sanitising spray with which we sanitise the entire unit after service. This leaves your feminine hygiene unit cleaner than the average kitchen counter! So clean - in fact - that you could eat off it*.

*Over 4000 swab tests - taken by an independent SANAS accredited Laboratory - from PLUS serviced feminine hygiene units proved that the combined use of Initial’s anti-bacterial liners, natural plant and mineral essential oil odour-neutralising granules and alcohol-free sanitising solution leaves PLUS-serviced feminine hygiene units more hygienic than the average kitchen counter.

Our Sanitact Green preparation is an environmentally-friendly and biodegradable solution. This formulation, as part of the 5 layers of protection, disinfects waste to ensure sanitary bins remain odour-free and are antibacterial.

Its key raw materials include essential oils, moisture absorbing mineral and an odour neutralising agent.

Key features of the Sanitact Green formulation:

  • Contain essential Oils: These act to neutralize odours where essential oils react with odour molecules to chemically change their structure and render them odourless. The essential oils mask malodors and also blend with them, to make them less noticeable, as well as some factions of the essential oils work to block odours.
  • Essential oils are anti-bacterial in a vapour phase: The vapour builds in the sanitary bin as it is released from the granule which inhibits the growth of bacteria over an approximate period of 30 days.
  • Moisture Absorbent: The base mineral granule acts to reduce the moisture content within the bin and thereby reduces the ambient odour level. Moisture is also essential for bacterial growth, so the absorption of moisture by Sanitact Green will help to restrict bacterial growth.
  • Odour Neutralizer: The proprietary concentrated odour neutralizer formulation is developed for use in industrial applications such as landfill sites, transfer stations and sewage treatment plants. When used with Sanitact Green it helps neutralise ammonia and amine odours which can be generated within sanitary bins.

The plastic sanitary bin liners used by Initial is a revolutionary eco-friendly solution to sanitary waste management.

Benefits of Initial’s sanitary bin liners:

  • Anti-Bacterial: Bin Liners are coated with a sanitizing agent to slow down bacterial growth.
  • Scented to ensure a pleasant bathroom experience: Sanitary bin liners are scented to prevent malodours and to optimise the lifespan of the bins.
  • 100% Eco-Friendly: Degradable by 90% within 6 months, these liners are completely environmentally safe. Incorporating Totally Degradable Plastic Additive (TDPA) in the plastic, ensures that the liners are biodegradable and will completely turn into biomass within 6 months.
