Sanitary Bins

Our feminine hygiene service provides you with the peace of mind and confidence that your environmental and legislative concerns are taken care of. You are also providing users with a safe, discreet, easy to use, and hygienic solution offering them complete reassurance whilst using your facility. Our no touch feminine hygiene units, with built in antibacterial technology, are the most hygienic solution to help prevent the spread of germs.

Disposing of sanitary waste is a sensitive issue. Washroom visitors can feel anxious about touching sanitary bin surfaces due to the potential harbouring of bacteria. Providing a safe and hygienic means of sanitary disposal ensures visitor confidence is improved and their experience enhanced.

Initial Hygiene's no touch feminine hygiene unit requires just a wave of the hand across an infra-red sensor positioned on top of the bin to activate the quiet opening lid and after use it will automatically close softly and quietly. This ensures all unnecessary physical contact is removed whilst ensuring total discretion for the visitor.

Our no-touch feminine hygiene unit also contains an environmentally friendly ‘BioSach’ sachet. This sachet combats unpleasant odours inside the unit whilst releasing a delicate citrus fragrance. This ensures a clean and fresh smelling toilet cubicle greets your visitors.
