Nappies and incontinence waste can be put into your non-recycling bins, but we also offer a separate collection service.
We offer this service to households that regularly exceed non-recycling capacity because of nappy or incontinence waste.
We collect nappy or incontinence waste every 2 weeks.
We review collections every year, when you’ll be able to extend (or renew) your collection.
Review a nappy or incontinence collection
If you already receive a nappy or incontinence collection, we may ask you to complete a review to check that you still need this collection.
If we have asked you to complete a review, you can complete this online.
Essex County Council offer a £30 refund on the purchase of any cloth nappies or laundering fees.
Cloth nappies are:
- cheaper – you could save up to £1000 per baby using them
- made of more natural materials and fewer chemicals
- more environmentally friendly – disposables take hundreds of years to decompose
