Sanitary Disposal Bins: Mr Waster was reading a book on chain restaurants recently (which seem to be taking over the world – thankfully Australia is not as chain restaurant heavy as countries like the USA)- and apparently chain restaurants and hotels / motels developed in the USA with the growth of the motor car.



Tourists and business travellers would choose a brand they knew that offered standard service when in a new or unfamiliar town. This of course can now be seen with the proliferation of McDonalds, Starbucks and brand name hotels worldwide.



In a huge country like the USA – and in many ways Australia – this makes sense. If you are a busy travelling worker or holiday maker – you often want to feel comfortable and at ease in your new surroundings.


One of the standards customers demand is a pleasant bathroom experience. If you think about it – many holiday makers in overseas countries – visit brands they know purely for this reason – to experience a level of comfort and cleanliness that they expect.


To ensure a nice washroom experience, you can organise sanitary disposal (female sanitary bins) at accessible prices through Waster. We are often asked is it a legal requirement to provide sanitary disposal bins in a washroom – and whilst the legislation is a grey area – we cover how there is not a legal requirement in this blog.


Having said that – organising sanitary disposal bins is a cheap and convenient method of ensuring a clean and pleasant bathroom.

Should you ask customers about bathroom cleanliness and sanitary disposal bins


Some businesses are now implementing computerised washroom grading – so visitors can grade the cleanliness etc of the bathroom. This system will usually have a point grading system on a scale such as 1-5, where one is not satisfactory etc. However – we ask is this really a good idea.


You have probably seen these sort of systems – where 1 is a frown – and 5 gets a beaming smiley face!


This online article by argues that it is not necessarily a good idea:


It’s a no brainer that this needs to be clean. Which is why the four point scale implied by the buttons in this photo won’t help the airport make many decisions – a clean bathroom is a dark green smiley face. Anything less isn’t clean. Which is why that maintenance person needs to have the checklist in hand to help them make that call (Trash cans empty? Toilets working? Soap dispensers full? Water on floor?), and the authority to fix it if there’s a problem.”

“But the bathroom? Just set the standards that define “clean” and make sure your people keep them that way. Then focus your efforts on ways to understand and delight your travelers, no matter how different they may be.”


We suppose a bathroom is one of those areas where you either pass or fail – and sanitary disposal services can be a vital component of passing that test.


Maybe the grading system for bathrooms should simply be pass or fail – and a fail means that the client will likely never return.


Think about it – there is no point in investing heavily in food and decor in a restaurant – if the bathroom lets you down – and this is where sanitary disposal bins can really help you up your performance.


You can easily arrange sanitary disposal bins for your business from as little as $20+GST per month (as at November 2019).
