Case 354 - Nappies not to be disposed of in sanitary bins
At a local party venue the enquirer saw a poster in the ladies toilet stating "Due to Health and Safety Law please do not put nappies in the sanitary bins. Please use the nappy bins provided".
This is not a health and safety issue at all. The notice should simply ask people to use the correct bins provided and possibly explain that this is because nappies take up too much capacity in the restricted sanitary bins. There is no reason at all to call on good old "elf n safety" to strengthen their case.
