Bobrick B-3803 recessed combination unit consists of one high capacity paper towel dispenser with hemmed opening to avoid paper tearing and one removable leak-proof 24L waste bin. The rectilinear panel of this 2-in-1 with concealed flange achieves the neat aesthetic typical of minimalist décors. To ensure durability, all parts except the plastic container are made of 304 stainless steel with a hard-wearing brushed satin. The item comes equipped with two tumbler locks in order to discourage vandalism and with a door-swing limiter so that surrounding accessories are not damaged when servicing. The hand towel dispenser does not require any adaptor to adjust to single, C-fold or multifold paper towels. Nonetheless, TowelMate® 3803-130 is an optional accessory that would permit to dispense one sheet at time without bulging or sagging. Should you be interested in a semi-recessed version of this product, B-38032 is the code.

Any advice to avoid toilet blocks with paper towels?

This unpleasant situation is quite common in public areas, especially school washrooms. We have gathered a few ideas on this blog post on how to discourage users from throwing paper towels into the toilet.

Here our main suggestions:

  • Ensure there is toilet tissue in the dispenser
  • Place easy to use waste bins on visible spots and try to avoid they are not full often
  • Think about offering electric hand dryers as an alternative method
  • Choose a towel dispensing system with a controlled, paper saving delivery
  • Make the most of technology to monitor consumable level and notify staff when there is an issue or shortage.

Could you provide some data on Paper Towels vs. Hand Dryers?

We believe that hand dryers are often the most energy efficient, cost saving and hygienic option to dry hands in commercial washrooms, however, paper towel dispensers may be the best solution for those facilities that lack power supply or require complete silence.

For the circumstances where both drying solutions are possible, here you have some blog posts and guides we have published over the years, which hopefully will help you decide:

How to handle human hygiene waste?

The UK has different regulations and recommendations to handle sanpro waste (sanitary towels, nappies, incontinence pads) depending on its hazard level and the facilities where it is disposed.

We encourage you to read through the official guidance on the subject. As a summary, we understand that:

  • If it originated from a healthy population, it can be disposed with general household waste.
  • Should it be produced in large amounts, like may happen in nurseries, schools or motorway services areas, it is advisable to package it away from other waste.
  • When the household waste is classified as hazardous, it must be securely transported and disposed in appropriate containers by a healthcare professional or collected as healthcare waste by the local authorities (who may charge for it).
  • Clinical waste must be handled following the law by entities with a waste management license. You will find more information in the webpage linked above and this guide.
