Nappies | Sevenoaks District Council


Disposable nappies cannot be recycled and must be bagged and put in with your black waste sacks.

Just one disposable nappy in one your clear recycling sacks could lead to the whole lorry load of good recycling being rejected. As a result, our collection crews will not take any clear recycling sacks that contains disposable nappies.

The clear sacks will be left and emptied the following week, provided that the nappies have been removed.

Reusable nappies

You could save money and reduce the amount waste by switching to reusable cloth nappies. Find out more on the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) website.

Reusable cloth nappies are available from all good local retailers and number of online businesses can help you make that change, give advice and stock specialist products.
