Can I Compost Disposable nappies?(From the Household waste category | No comments yet - start the conversation)
No, disposable nappies/diapers can’t be composted.
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.
