I am trying to find an example of a good council that collects nappies separately from black bag stuff. Reading that lots of people already separate out nappies at home- nappy bins/buckets etc., so why don't the council take them like this? We are trying to stop our council burning so much waste.
I wish ours did. We can often barely close our wheelie bin by the time the fortnight is up and high summer takes on a whole new meaning. And no, cloth is absolutely not an option for my autistic tween, before anyone chips in.
Our council will come and pick them up separately, no idea what they do with them, if they recycle them somehow or not. They only do this as they recently changed our non recyclable waste uplifts to once every four weeks so the nappies would be walking to the tip by then!
They are talking about changing our non recyclables to 3 weekly pick up, which will be bad enough. It seems crazy from the nappy point if view, and as there is no food composting scheme, the bins are going to reek!
