The Nappicycle Concept
The concept for NappiCycle started back in 2009, to provide a low impact, cost-efficient nappy and absorbent hygiene products recycling facility in Wales, aimed at servicing the requirements of both the local authorities as well as the business community at large.
It had to be capable of providing the assistance to local authorities to achieve challenging recycling targets set by Welsh Government, in the drive ‘Towards Zero Waste’.
Over this period NappiCycle, working with its exclusive partner Natural UK Ltd, has undertaken comprehensive research and development of a unique and innovative treatment system for the recovery of cellulose and plastics from nappy and incontinence wastes. As a company, we give our customers 100% diversion from the traditional landfill disposal method as well as providing the added element of recovery and recycling. What has traditionally been viewed as a waste product has now become a resource.
With nearly 200 million nappies thrown away in Wales every year, or over half a million nappies each day, NappiCycle offers an innovative and environmentally-friendly solution to this problem.
