 Diapers


Put soiled diapers and diaper liners in your black cart as garbage.

Special instructions

  • Double bag and tie used diapers for disposal in your black cart.
  • Never flush diapers down your toilet as they can harm your drainage pipes and the environment.

Can diapers marked biodegradable and/or compostable go in my green cart for composting?
No. The elastics, tabs and other non-compostable materials don't break down during the composting process and will contaminate the finished compost.

Unused diapers
Many charities take donations of unused disposable diapers and second-hand cloth diapers that are in good condition.
