A landfill recycling facility in the UK will be supplying roof tiles made from recycled nappies. Considering that the average baby soils 5,000-6,000 diapers by the time they are potty-trained, which takes up to 500 years to decompose at a landfill, this is definitely promising.

In the United Kingdom the estimated number of disposable diapers that are clogging the landfills is about 8 million a day. So even though recycled nappies may seem disgusting, it's really rather ingenious.

If you are interested in a learning more about recycled nappies, you can take an online ‘plant tour’ of the process, there is a video that will answer all of your questions at the Knowaste WEBsite.
