As a company, the safety of our employees and customers is our number one priority. Some of our employees need to enter businesses to collect waste that you are now required by law to wear face coverings.
We hope that the use of face coverings and other government guidelines will aid in the prevention of further cases.
PPE waste does not need to be handled or disposed of differently to normal general waste. PPE, including face coverings, should not be placed in any recycling bin as this will contaminate the whole load. Some businesses have implemented dedicated PPE bins for their employees to use to avoid contaminating recycling.
Our hygiene and disposal bins PPE bins can come with pedal or motion sensor activated bin lids and no-touch hand sanitiser stations to limit cross-contamination. There is also the ability to have them custom designed and branded to suit individual needs.
