    Absolutely, but it puts paid to all the sweeping "it's illegal!" claims.

    Boy I would hate to have the job of going through someones rubbish, opening up each nappy to see if it had poo or wee in it. Seriously..

    How can they really govern that. That is pathetic. Oops sorry.. You left one nugget in this nappy. Lucky though, I checked all the others and yep your all good. Well except for these ones that feel wet and heavy. I wasn't sure if it was urine so I did the old taste test. All good there too, turns out it was just left over orange juice.

    I'm not sure whether it'd be governed or works on trust. I guess they trust us not to put any illegal/dangerous substances in the bins, or 'hot oils' as I think my bin says, if the council doesn't want poo in the bins I guess they would work on the same level of trust that residents do the right thing.

    I think it is all a little silly really. If it really was a danger, you would think there would be a more universal rule, and more information given to the public. I don't like the thought of poop as much as the next person, but I think most people who use disposables throw it in the bin sealed in a nappy, and you don't hear of any dire consequences out there in society. Personally I flush, and use a little squirt and compostable nappies when not in cloth, but I don't judge anyone else who just wants to chuck it in the bin!!!
