Disposable nappies are not recyclable for disposal they must be bagged and put in the black waste bin.

Just one disposable nappy in one recycling bin, could lead to the whole lorry load of good recycling being rejected. As a result, collection crews will not empty any recycling bin that contains disposable nappies.

The bin will be left and emptied on the next cycle, provided that the contamination has been removed.

Reusable nappies

You could save money and reduce the amount waste by switching to reusable cloth nappies. Find out more on the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) website.

Reusable cloth nappies are available from all good local retailers and number of online businesses can help you make that change, give advice and stock specialist products.
