Nappies and Absorbent Waste

Homes that produce nappies and other absorbent waste products (not feminine hygiene products) can register for a separate fortnightly collection which will be on the same day as your non-recyclable waste collection.

In total, this service will cater for nappies, wipes, paper tissues, stoma bags, adult incontinence pads and nappies, absorbent bed sheets, plastic gloves and disposable aprons.

To apply for the new Absorbent Hygiene Products collection (which will use purple bags) please call 01656 643643 or email
