S.A.C. Sanitary Napkin Disposal Unit

Push through front panel door for easy disposal of sanitary napkins, tampons, wipes and panty liners. For use with all S.A.C. sanitary napkin disposal bags. This unit offers safe clean disposal without the user having to be exposed to germs, bacteria or virus contaminated surfaces. No lids to lift open as is common on other products. This is a large capacity unit which should require less frequent changing. The large unit measures 9.5" W x 15" H x 4"D and the medium unit measures 9.5” x 12” x 4”.

This product uses a degradable bag liner S.A.C. item #’s TD9024 (large) and TD9022 (medium). This liner fits snugly around the inner frame and is held in place with a clip. The snug fit helps to keep all waste inside the bag. This liner replaces the use of an ineffective paper bag liner that often leaves gaps between the inner wall of the unit and does not capture all of the waste.

  • Helps prevent the spread of germs by containing waste or soiled items inside the bin.
  • Helps to reduce unpleasant odors because the front panel door snaps closed
  • Helps to hide visible waste or soiled items because there is no lift top.
  • This unit provides the option to dispose of wipes and other items properly rather than flushing, which can cause costly plumbing problems.
  • Panel door snaps shut after items are pushed through.
  • Front panel opens wide for easy access to replace the bag liner and clean the unit.

You can miss this!

If you have trouble with people flushing items even after posting numerous please do not flush signs, you are not alone! People need clean and convenient disposal options. S.A.C. disposal bags reduce the need to wrap items in toilet paper to hide them in a waste bin. In addition, people are very concerned with cross contamination coming into contact with other peoples bodily fluids and they should be. No one wants to see or come in contact with used wipes, tampons, pads applicators or any used personal hygiene item any more than they want to come into contact with used toilet paper. This is why people flush all of it!

So, with S.A.C. we introduce a clean method of disposal that is 1.) sanitary, 2.) discreet, 3.) convenient, 4.) protects workers and users, 6.) provides instruction and re-trains the public NOT TO FLUSH! and 7.) environmentally friendly for many reasons which I will get to in the next part.

Environmental benefits

Ecological consequences for our forests:

Presently women dispose of used feminine hygiene products by wrapping them up in toilet paper and flushing them or less commonly, throwing them in the trash.

The average female uses one extra roll of toilet paper during their menstruation for the purpose of feminine hygiene product disposal alone. This conservatively averages to 12 rolls a year and approximately 515 rolls in their lifetime.

In the year 2000 in the US, there were an estimated 90,963,449 women between the age of 10 and 54. The above 515 rolls multiplied by women of this age group adds up to a lot of wasted resources.

Forests are being destroyed to make toilet paper, facial tissues, paper towels and other disposable paper products. We can help by reducing the amount of paper that is wasted. Millions of trees can be saved by using S.A.C. instead of wrapping up feminine hygiene products in toilet paper.

Water pollution:

The average woman flushes used personal hygiene products after wrapping them in toilet paper. Floatables is the term used to describe the trash, debris and other visible material discharged when sewers overflow. Floatables generally include sanitary products and other wastes commonly flushed down the toilet.

Floatable debris has an adverse effect on the marine environment and is costly to clean up. Reducing waste at the source means it does not have to be collected, handled or processed by sewage treatment facilities or cleaned up by floatable collection programs.

Disinfectants commonly used to clean up after feminine hygiene products in restrooms such as quaternary ammonium compounds, phenols and bleach are registered with the EPA as pesticides. These toxic chemicals are used for routine cleaning. By utilizing S.A.C. cleaning service companies will have less mess to clean and disinfect which means using less chemicals resulting in fewer toxins being released into our water.

By utilizing S.A.C. you will be preventing waste before it is generated. It is a common-sense way to save financial and natural resources, as well as reduce pollution.
