Bins4Blokes campaign marks World Incontinence Week 2021

It’s World Incontinence Week and the launch of Bins4Blokes, a campaign to raise awareness about male incontinence.

The Continence Foundation of Australia, the peak body promoting bowel and bladder health, is calling for councils, businesses, and sports organisations to install incontinence product disposal bins in male toilets.

“Men with incontinence need to have a comfortable and discreet way to dispose of pads and pants,” they say.

Via a new Bins4Blokes website, people have been asked to Pledge Their Support and nominate where they would like a bin installed.

There are more than a million blokes in Australia who have a form of incontinence affecting their bladder or bowel.

It can stop them from doing things they like, such as dining out attending entertainment and sporting events, participating in outdoor activities or going to the shops. One of the key reasons, say CFA, is the inability to dispose of incontinence products in public.

The bin4blokes website includes links to a bin provider directory and resources to be used for toilet providers.
