Used pads should be wrapped in paper bags and put in closed bins. Avoid using plastic bags for disposal. Pads should never be flushed in the toilet as it clogs drains. They shouldn’t be disposed of without a wrapper as open pads with menstrual blood become a breeding ground for bacteria and diseases. Also, they must be segregated from the rest of the household waste.
Separate bins should be placed in public toilets in schools, colleges, malls, offices, airports, train stations, hospitals, etc. Disposal of waste is a big concern in our country, and we must think of the person who has to segregate the sanitary waste with bare hands from the rest of the garbage.
