Definitely use it - disposables are bad enough without chucking them out when they are not even used. It would never occur to me to throw it out.
I try not to be a germ-phobe but it's tricky when I found my DD sucking on the handle of the shopping trolley!
I had a thread a few years ago about a lollipop my DS had in the shops that fell on the floor. I left it up to him if he wanted to put it back in his mouth. (He did - he has the immunity of a horse!!)
I should have explained why I would bin it.
DD is ana to eggs. Even touch up to two hours later causes a major reaction.
I would bin in case someone had dropped food and the nappy touched crumbs, Mayo or anything else. And change rooms are gross!
I'd use it and not give it a seconds thought.
When I read the thread title I totally thought this was going to be a 'someone left a used nappy on the ground!' thread, and I was all prepared with an 'Ewwwwww', lol.
Let me finish the tale of the parent room woes..
So I go to pick up the nappy:
Hubby: "what are you doing?"
Me: "putting this in the bin"
Me: "I'm not having any old germ touching my child's @rse."
Me: "I will put this on the forum and see what the other mums think."
Hubby: "make sure you take a photo of the floor."
I then take ds1 (3.5) into the toilet part and in the time it's taken me To get the cleaning wipes out of my bag (to wipe the toilet seat) he's already dropped his dacks and is sitting on the seat.
Unlessit fell inside out then there isn't an issue for me. Even then I'd just get a wipe out and quickly give it a wipe and use ir.

I remember I took my 3yo nephew to the shops once (many years ago) and he needed to pee. So I took him into the stall, got his pants down and then held him suspended horizontally above the toilet so he could pee without touching the seat! He thought it was hilarious!
Obviously I'll just have to be equipped with disinfectant wipes for DS, and hope that I can get them out in time...
