WHICH BIN TIPS
Disposing of nappy waste
All nappies, even those that claim to be biodegradable or compostable need to go in the general waste bin.
At present, there is no known brand of compostable nappies that can completely break down in a commercial composting system. This is due to the plastic elements such as liners, tabs, and elastic that remain as residue after being processed. The plastic components equate to more than 10% which is above the acceptable contamination.
For this reason all nappies need to be disposed of in the general waste bin.
