National lockdown rules apply in Harlow. You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You can now access community testing in Harlow to find out if you might have the virus without symptoms.

Nappies and incontinence waste

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.

Cloth nappies

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

You can get more information on the cloth nappy scheme on the Love Essex website
