We use trash carts to dump waste in the dumpster outside the plant.

This is done multiple times a day.Our auditor has told us to sanitize cart wheels when we bring it inside the building.

What would be the best practice to sanitize waste containers wheels?

 

Thanks

DT

A bottle of sanitizer spray or what i have done in the past is use a foot bath sanitizer, placed it inside by the door and rolled the cans through there. You could also minimize the risk by designating 1 cart as your outside cart and that way only have to keep tract of one that is being used outside.

Do we have to validate it?

I was never asked to. But that doesn't mean another auditor won't want it validated.

We are assuming that we will be asked to validate it and now have to figure out how to do so.

Thank you for your help.

Hi dt2win, 

If you don't mind my asking, what is the nature of your operation? For example, do you process ready-to-eat products? There are many more fundamental questions to address before rushing on to apply seemingly good solutions that may end up wasting resources and providing little if any benefit.


Some are timid and rob the world of the contributions they can otherwise make.
