Nappies and sanitary products

Disposable nappies and sanitary products can’t be recycled, please put them in your general waste bin where they are used to make electricity.

There are a number of reusable options available for both sanitary products and cloth nappies.

On average, a baby from newborn to 18 months old will use 5,000 disposable nappies.

Compare the cost of using real nappies and see how much you could save.
