A to Z of recycling

Nappies

Nappies
Description
Reduce: Why not try reusable nappies to help reduce the 2.9 billion disposable nappies that are being disposed of each year in the UK. There are environmental benefits as well as the possibility of saving money.

Disposal: Nappies can't be recycled and should be placed in your general rubbish bin. All waste placed in your rubbish bin is taken to one of Staffordshire's energy recovery plants. Any paper and cardboard in your pack of new nappies can be recycled. Please do not recycle the nappies, plastic film or any polystyrene packaging.

Reduce: Consider switching to online versions if available.

Recycle: Small amounts of newspaper can be shredded and used as a valuable addition to your home compost bin to give the compost a good structure. Do not home compost glossy magazines.

Dry and clean newspapers and magazines can be accepted in the recycling kerbside collection. If the paper is shredded please take it to one of Staffordshire's recycling centres. Check your local council for further information.

Staffordshire's recycling centres can accept all dry, clean paper for recycling.

Non-recyclable household waste

Non-recyclable household waste
Description
Check your local council for further information on what can be accepted in the recycling bin. Most of the items brought to the Staffordshire's recycling centres can either be reused or recycled. See the full list of what can be recycled at your local recycling centre.

Recovery: Most household items that cannot be reused or recycled can be placed in your kerbside rubbish bin. Electrical items should not be thrown in the rubbish bin, they contain hazardous and valuable materials and should be recycled properly. Check your local council for further information on what other items can and cannot be placed in the rubbish bin.

Excess waste can be taken to Staffordshire's recycling centres. All waste placed in your rubbish bin or the residual skip at the recycling centre is taken to one of Staffordshire's energy recovery plants.
