Nappy recycling plants proves that, where there's muck, there's brass

12 September 2011

A Bitterwallet reader, this morning

Got a room full of soiled nappies? Good news! The UK's first ever nappy recycling plant is to open today! Crack open the champers!

It's not just filthy nappies either, you lucky lucky lot! The facility will also recycle feminine hygiene products and adult incontinence pads! Ain't life wonderful?!

Knowaste are the people who want you to throw your jamrags and gloopy gussets at them so they can use state-of-the-art technology to recycle, sterilise and recover the plastic and fibre in these stinky articles and turn them into roof tiles and such.

Just think of it. A house covered in Tena Lady! Poetic.

Roy Brown, chief executive officer of Knowaste, says: "This first site in West Bromwich represents the beginning of a £25m overall investment in the UK, that will produce capacity for handling about a fifth of the AHP waste stream - equating to a saving of 110,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.

"In the UK, more than 1m tonnes of AHP waste is generated annually, much of which is landfilled. A significant proportion of which is produced by the commercial sector and we are proud to be working with some of the Midlands' and nation's leading AHP collection companies already."

Now, some poor sod has to sift through all this junk.
