Disposing of menstrual waste

Bucket with blue lid next to a pole, paper and cloth waste around it

“To dispose of the used pads…you put them in the separate dustbin outside the house…You don’t put it together with the main bag of rubbish in case somebody saw that. I mean…people come and look through the rubbish for things to recycle…If you put your dustbins out for the municipality to collect, you always see people coming and looking.” Photo: PATH.
