    Tipping poo isn't hard with a toddler who is on solids exclusively, unless they're unwell.

    But yes, I know that in Qld, that clinical waste doesn't include nappies, pads, bandages, etc (though it may differ from council to council). That's just Qld legislation in regards to waste management.

    I still think it's a better idea to tip it if you can though.

    Yes!!!

    I tip it in the bin anyway (if it's possible IYKWIM), for the smell factor. If it were illegal, how the hell could they police that, anyway?? Would there have to be poo inspectors, checking each bin on bin night?? LOL

    I've seen signs on neighbour's bins telling them they contained things that weren't supposed to be in there... so they must monitor the bins somehow, at least some of the time...

    Seriously that's what my BIL is for the local council!
    All stuff in the recycle bin gets processed by workers picking through it all as its tipped on conveyor belts ( would not want that job!) I know that's why they say not to put poo nappys in the recycle bin as those poor workers have to pick them out!!

    Yes, they do. And if you are warned a certain number of times they will refuse to empty your bins. There are warnings about this on council waste disposal info. Well there is on mine anyway.

    How do they know whose bin things come from?
