This spring Mole Valley District Council will run a weekly nappy and absorbent hygiene product collection trial in Fetcham and Bookham. It is the first council in the South of England to offer this recyclng service.
This will be a 6 month trial and using brand new technology, the waste will be turned into plastic pellets and cardboard fibres. It is estimated that residents throw away over 1000 tonnes of nappies a year, so this will be a fantastic chance to recycle instead.
If the trial is successful, district wide collections could be rolled out.
