#theNappyRevolution - Star of the Week goes to the Soiled Diaper, Canada

Just because there isn’t currently a used nappy pick-up service in the UK, doesn’t mean there couldn’t be one day.

Across the world, they do exist, and they have proven that it is possible. 

Mark Arishenkoff, co-founder of Soiled Diaper, a used-nappy pick-up service in Calgary, Canada, explains how their system works:

“We offer weekly, bi-weekly (fortnightly) and monthly collections – for private residents,” Mark says. (On a subscription basis)

“We go [to homes] and collect the nappies and we bring it back to our facility, shred them up to organic material and once it’s all shredded up, it goes into the composting unit and it takes 10 to 12 days from start to finish to compost the nappies.

“At the end, any of the inorganic bits that don’t compost, we screen those out, and we send them for further processing. Any of the clean plastics can go to be pelletised, any of the dirty plastics can be recycled… and all we’re left with is the reusable organic compost."

We salute The Soiled Diaper for their invaluable contribution to the environment. And for proving the case for nappy composting. It can be done. It is being done. Now we need this for the UK.
