We are planning two new schemes to help families with children in nappies to reduce and manage their waste.
Free disposable nappy collections
To help families with young children in disposable nappies to manage their black bin waste we offer a free nappy collection service. This service is available to families with children aged five or under in disposable nappies.
Households are provided with a roll of 60 purple nappy collection bags to use for nappy waste only. The bags can be put out next to or inside the black bin by 7am on your black bin collection day.
The nappy bags can be used for:
- disposable nappies
- nappy sacks
- cotton wool
If the bags contain any other type of waste they will not be collected.
Please use the button below to order your free bags.
Our brand new reusable nappy scheme, Happy Nappies is now available. You can buy a discounted reusable nappy kit from us to help you reduce waste in your black bin, save money and help the environment.
You can order your kit by completing the form on the link below by choosing ‘Other payments’, then ‘Waste management’ and ‘Happy Nappies reusable birth to potty nappy kit’. Make sure you read the terms and conditions before you order your kit.
We are selling the kits, which are provided by Bambino Mio, at a discounted price of £128. They contain everything you need to get started with reusable nappies:
- 15 x Miosolo all-in-one nappies
- 50 Mioliners (biodegradable nappy liners)
- 1 x 300g Miofresh (nappy cleanser)
- 1 x nappy bucket
- 2 x laundry bags
Reusable nappy kits are delivered to South Gloucestershire residents free of charge. If you do not live in South Gloucestershire you will need to collect your kit from us South Gloucestershire Council Offices, Badminton Road, Yate, Bristol BS37 5AF. A member of the waste management team will contact you to let you know when your kit will be available.
We are working with the other West of England authorities (Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and Bristol City) to promote reusable nappies through our Nappy Change for Good campaign.Is there anything wrong with this page?
