How to recycle this item

Disposable nappies makes up 6%of the County’s household waste – that’s over 5000 tonnes per year! They can take up to 500 years to decompose, more if disposed of in a plastic bag.

Each household with a baby in disposable nappies generates an extra bag of rubbish each week.

Cotton nappies are a good way of reducing this rubbish. Warwickshire County Council fund a free 2 week washable nappy trial for parents to ‘try before buy’.
