NEW In: Little Ones Soap Dispenser

Lateral Flow Test Disposal

We are continuing to support schools, colleges and universities by collecting, and responsibly disposing of, used lateral flow tests and associated PPE waste. We offer our lateral flow disposal bins on a weekly or fortnightly short term service schedule. Our trained Customer Delivery Representative will attend your site and collect the waste directly from the bin.

Due to being designated as different European Waste Codes (EWC) used lateral flow tests and any associated PPE must be disposed of in different bins. Lateral flow tests are categorised as chemical under the European Waste Codes (EWC) 18 01 07, whereas PPE is categorised as offensive under 18 01 04.
We offer two distinct waste solutions to keep you fully compliant with legislation.

Bad hygiene hotspots in educational premises

Our comprehensive range of products can improve hygiene standards in all of these problematic areas:


The usual epicentre of germs; our soaps, sanitisers and hand dryers can help to prevent harmful pathogens from escaping the washroom.

Reception / Front Door

First impressions are crucial. Installing any of Initial’s fixed or serviced matting will ensure yours is a positive one.


Kitchen hygiene keeps staff and students safe from food related illnesses. Our soaps and sanitisers will minimise the amount of germs in the food preparation areas.


Dirty classrooms are breeding grounds for harmful bacteria. Portable or fixed hand sanitisers notably reduce the risk of school-wide infection outbreaks.
