Sanitary Bins FAQ

How often should sanitary bins be emptied?

Sanokil recommends starting your Sanitary Bin service on a monthly frequency. Our technicians will then assess if you require a more frequent exchange and provide this information to our head office. From here one of our friendly customer service representatives will contact you to discuss.


How often can Sanokil service my businesses?

After discussing your needs, one of our customer service representatives will tailor your sanitary exchange to meet the needs of your individual business operations.


When will sanitary bins be exchanged?

Once your installation has been completed, Sanokil will assign you to a service run. This is to ensure that your service is completed at the required intervals. Our runs are structured to guarantee your services are completed at the correct frequency, not just scheduled for the same day each month. If this is not suitable for your business or you wish for the service to be completed discreetly before your site opens, you are able to provide a key to Sanokil to complete the service.


How do you service sanitary bins?

Sanokil removes the Sanitary Disposal Unit from your site and replaces it with a fresh, sanitised unit that contains a liner and extra strong granules to destroy germs and odours.


What is a full bin exchange? Why is it better than competitors “in cubicle” servicing?

Sanokil provides a full bin exchange on each service to ensure that a fully sanitised and cleaned unit is in place. This reduces the risk of harmful germs and helps to avoid cross contamination.


How much do sanitary bin services cost?

Our customer service representatives will take into consideration your location, the frequency of services and quantity of units required to provide a tailored quote for your business.


What happens to the waste?

Sanokil disposes of sanitary waste the same as it does other clinical and hazardous material. Incineration. This eliminates toxic and hazardous waste while also reducing its volume.


Are sanitary bins a legal requirement?

Safe work Australia states that toilets should be supplied with, an adequate supply of toilet paper for each toilet, hand washing facilities, rubbish bins and (for female workers) hygienic means to dispose of sanitary items.


How can I get cheaper services?

We want you to be happy with our offerings so we lower the price whenever we can. This can happen when you provide a competitors quote, increase the quantity of services we provide or act on one of our regular promotional offers.


Can I dispose of sanitary waste myself?

Yes, however we firmly believe that, like all hazardous material, it should be disposed of in a way that minimises risk. This is why we believe it should be left to the professionals and be disposed of in the same way as clinical waste. Other benefits of serviced units include the simplicity, flexibility, increased hygiene and an easily recognisable bin for the user.
