Sanitary Bin Services Information

The Alcocks Hygiene Division is dedicated to maintaining this vital cleaning service to all commercial and industrial premises. This is service benefits establishments and safeguards hygiene standards. The object of which is to remove Sanitary Waste thus removing the food source of bacteria. Breeding bacteria has a greater chance in wash room areas as the areas are usually moist and have ideal growth conditions. A bacteria source left without regular changing and removal will become airborne and is released into the atmosphere and thus increase the risk of infection apart from giving off a terrible odour.

Sanitary Bin maintenance involves combine efforts of highly trained staff correctly attired with gloves and chemical formulations. This maintenance service is not designed to take the place of the daily cleaner but rather to assist as they should not be handling high risk bacteria by-products for obvious health and safety reasons.

Benefits of using the Sanitary Bin option in the Washroom areas include preventing the spread of diseases such as:

  • Typhoid
  • Dysentery
  • Gastro-enteritis
  • Hepatitis “A”
  • Herpes
  • Cystitis (Bladder infections)
  • To name but a few……….

Our team at Alcocks Hygiene undertake to standardize the works procedure as follows:

When cleaning the Bin:

  • The bin will have a chemical preparation sprayed into it, be cleared out, re-sprayed and sanitised.
  • A plastic liner bag will then be placed into it along with a smell inhibitor chemical and sanitizer powder.
  • The old bag will immediately be placed into a non-see-through disposable bag and then transferred to a carry bag for easy removal.

Bin Lid:

Each Lid will be sprayed with a disinfectant and sanitized before replacement of the liners.

Entire Bin removal:

Removal of the entire bin if contaminated will be at the discretion of the hygiene supervisor. An appropriate calculation of frequency will be applied and recommended accordingly in relation to the number of ladies likely to make use of the sanitary bin.

Contents Disposal:

On removal of the contents the handling of the contents will be in the most discreet and unobtrusive manner by our trained staff. Upon return to our premises the waste product shall be sent for incineration or disposed of (in an appropriate manner). This is determined by a government recognised Waste Management Service retained by our company. Documentation can be called for and will be made available on request.

No washing or rinsing of bins or lids will be done on the clients premises. Should soiling or damaging occur to a Sanitary Bin, it will be replaced.

Discretion is our operative word.
