How do you dispose of nappies?

Hope no one reads this that shouldn't. We send them home for disposal. I think historically they weren't allowed to start wearing nappies and then when they were the dustbins were by the front gate so not ideal.

I have never changed the policy because the area the setting is in the parents would think they are very 'green' but I have never seen a terry nappy in eight years. (My daughter wore then -born in 2000) Our local council has always promoted green issues.

A member of staff did mention a collection service recently but then mentioned it would be every 2 weeks!!!

In a hall, I asked our EH lady when she came to do our kitchen check.

She said she was more than happy for us to just put them in the dustbin. She asked how we stored them until disposal - in a lined, lidded bin, double wrapped if pooey, single if just wet until end of session.

We only really have a max of about four on any day- most days less, and as the year goes on by the summer often none. She said over the space of a week we probably have far less then the average family with young children anyway, and it would be ridiculous to expect us to use a waste disposal service. :1b

I love my EH officer - you should have heard her comments on food hygiene certs for fruit and biscuits preschool settings!!!!

 

I should add though....for our own benefit pooey nappy's usually go straight out into the dustbins!

We have discussed this before! For my part they get double bagged and sent home! I'm really hoping Panders tells you what she does - it never fails to make me chuckle! xDxDxD

Don't know who's the cheeky one here me or you!

 

Our setting is very close to a tescos! so they are bagged up and I use their facilities in Their baby "changing room I feel tescos needs to get a little back every now and then, but to be fair we only ever have one possibly two nappies per day and at the moment only one is in nappies

We use a Sangenic nappy bin through the day, then put them in the dustbin at the end of the day. The Sangenic bin is brilliant as it seals each nappy that goes in by twisting it into the bin liner, so you get no smells. We then put the whole twisted liner into a normal bin bag before it goes in the dustbin.

Love it!

Must admit we used to have to take our rubbish home- and as we're in a park I did consider using the park bins... I thought I could spread it around the different bins :rolleyes:

Lucky for us we've now built up a really good relationship with the park keepers, and they have requested that we 'bypass' the park bins idea and put it straight into their main disposal bins :D:D

We use a company called 'green bottoms', we put the nappies in nappy bags and then they go in yellow bags and then in a yellow wheelie bin and then they come and empty then fortnightly. Our parents like it that the are recycled and don't go in to landfill. We have lots of under 3's and get through A LOT of nappies daily!

we work from a village hall - of which i am now chair of the trustees !! our council put up the waste collection rate to nearly £200 per year from £19 - despite the fact we have less than a bin full of rubbish a year and the hall itself is a charity - so they want us to pay like a business we use the bin as a business would . Admittedly if we could afford to use a greener solution we would .

We also used sangenic nappy bin and then dispose of them in the schools 'waste to be incinerated' bin which is collected on a regular basis. We have noticed an increase over the last few years in the number of children attending who wear a nappy ... Many who are 3 or 4 years old.
