Anyone had experience with 'green bottoms' ?

I've just had a flyer through the door for a company called green bottoms that says it will collect disposable nappies every 2 weeks and can get 86% of them recycled. I'd love to use them if this is true and if they are a good company.
I'm a bit worried about having a devoted nappy bin outside my door for 2 weeks in the height of summer as well (based on the never to be forgotten first summer with DS when I opened my wheelie bin one day to find it swarming with maggots [disgusted, traumatised mummy emoticon].
Anyone had experience of them or similar? A bit off putting they have no website.

Hi Pantshavenames

I'm from Green Bottoms and we are a good company!

What we are trying to do is very new and hasn't been done before in the UK, but the environmental benefits are beyond doubt. For more information you can visit our website, the first version of which has just gone live (a little behind schedule) at

We started operating in Northamptonshire and surrounding a few weeks ago, and are seeing our customer base grow slowly but surely as more people become aware of the possibility of disposable nappy recycling, as well as the environmental benefits of it.

If you would like to try our service without any commitment, I would be delighted to offer you or any other mumsnet member a month's free trial - contact me at or on 01933 225 611 quoting mumsnet

I think you need to pay your £30 and register as a small business advertiser before posting such blatant advertisements!

Thanks Flibbertyjibbet, didn't realise we had to do that so will check it out

My post was a blatant advertisement, if what we were doing with Green Bottoms wasn't such a fantastic thing for the environment I would perhaps be ashamed at such naked commercialism - but the fact is that councils and government are not doing anything about disposable nappy recycling, so its up to us and our customers to change what we in the UK do with our used nappies - i'm afraid polluting the ground and ruining the countryside for our children and grandchildren by throwing them in landfill after landfill is just not good enough any more. Viva la revolucion!
