4. What about nappies or incontinence pads?

Throughout the trials we will be offering households a number of options in the way they dispose of nappies and hygiene products such as incontinence pads. We will be helping them on an individual basis if they approach the council for assistance.

 If residents need to dispose of nappies and hygiene products such as incontinence pads they can: 

  • Double wrap the products and dispose of them in their current waste bin,
  • If they find this difficult, we will assist the resident and, if appropriate, supply additional capacity bins
  • If this doesn't work for the household, they will be offered a sacked fortnightly collection with assisted collections if required.
