 NAPPIES AND INCONTINENCE PRODUCTS CAN’T BE RECYCLED! 

Every day, thousands of nappies arrive at the recycling facilities around Perth after being placed into the incorrect kerbside bin.

Soiled nappies and incontinence products should NEVER be placed in the recycling bin as they end up contaminating the recycling process.

PLEASE DISPOSE OF THESE PRODUCTS IN YOUR GENERAL WASTE BIN.

To find out more, contact your council or leave us a message.

Ditch the disposables and go reusable

One child will use 4,000-6,000 disposable nappies, costing up to $3,000. Each nappy takes up to 500 years to break down in landfill, where it generates methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

Modern cloth nappies are a great alternative – they have a lesser impact on the environment and will save you thousands of dollars over the time your baby is in nappies.

To find out how easy it is to use Real Nappies, visit m.recycleright.wa.gov.au/real-nappies.html or download the Recycle Right app from the iTunes or Google Play stores.
