National lockdown: Stay at home

Nappies

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.

But it says they can be recycled on the packet!

The recycling advice on the pack is only for the packaging, not the nappies.

Any paper and cardboard in your pack of new nappies can be recycled. And that’s all.

Please do not recycle the nappies, plastic film or any polystyrene packaging.

Mixing dirty nappies with other materials is a bad idea:

  • It’s unpleasant. Some recycled waste is sorted by hand. No-one wants to put their hands in baby poo at work.
  • It’s wasteful. If nappies are spotted in your recycling bin all the contents may be rejected.
