Always in the landfill bin: nappies

Nappies, clean or dirty, must always be placed in your red/blue landfill bin.

In South Australia, there are currently no known brands of compostable nappy that can completely break down in a commercial composting system. This is because the plastic elements, such as liners, tabs, and elastic, that remain as residue after processing equate to more than 10% of the product, which is above the acceptable contamination rate.
