Can I Compost Disposable nappies?

(From the Household waste category | No comments yet - start the conversation)

disposable-nappiesNo, disposable nappies/diapers can’t be composted.

Two reasons:

1) Use of plastic and chemicals in the absorbent layer – they won’t break down but it might break up and contaminating the rest of the compost.

2) The human faeces issue

Disposable nappies, unfortunately, have to be sent to landfill.
