Scotland's sustainable solution for recycling disposable nappies

Scotland's sustainable solution for recycling disposable nappies | Recycling News Channel | OrganicStream.org | Scoop.it
After the success of a kerbside pick-up scheme, two recycling firms aim to deal with the mountain of used nappies
The Organic Stream's insight:

"Food collections offer a parallel. The feared "yuk" factor of slopping out leftovers never really materialised. "Five years ago people said we would not be collecting food waste at the kerbside, and we're doing it now – not just in Scotland but across the UK," says Gulland. "I suspect that's what will happen with nappies within a couple of years.""


Of course, we would still like to see reusable nappies (and other absorbent hygiene products) gain in popularity and eventually replace disposable ones wherever possible. However, the ability to recycle these products will make a huge impact in reducing waste.
