Sanitary waste management is discussed with a focus on used sanitary napkins in the present article. The article makes an attempt to define a methodology to estimate the generation of used sanitary waste for used pads. The legal aspect of sanitary waste management is also discussed, which reduces programs on waste segregation at the source due to the inclusion of used sanitary pads as part of recyclable waste streams, despite it being part of domestic hazardous waste.
