Our Legal Responsibility

EcoSan encourage all our customers to comply with washroom regulations. We ensure that all our services meet or exceed current legal requirements.

We work closely with all our customers and partners to help them reduce their carbon footprint and meet recommended government landfill directives by recycling nappies, adult incontinence and feminine hygiene products.
