Some hand washing stations are designed for nothing more than checking off the presence of a hand sink on a regulatory review form. When workers actually wash their hands they quickly discover a deterring inconvenience - no waste receptacle.
Convenient waste receptacles are an important component in an effective, sustainable hand hygiene process. They partner with paper towels to significantly impact hand hygiene.
In wash rooms waste receptacles should be placed convenient to both the sinks and the exit door. An excellent means of preventing cross contamination when exiting the washroom is to protect your hand with a paper towel from soiled door handles. The towel is easily deposited into a convenient receptacle at the door.
