Whatever type of nappy you choose you have to deal with the waste and/or laundering. As more and more councils impose heavy fees for disposing of nappies and waste, you may find a nappy macerator a viable alternative. The Incomatic macerator from Dolphin (left) is capable of disposing of four nappies in around two minutes by macerating (shredding) them and then flushing them down the drain. The machine is operated by placing wipes, pads and nappies into the chamber, closing the lid, and pressing the start button. The machine cannot start unless the lid is fully closed, and it is fully soundproofed. A mild disinfectant is automatically injected during the maceration process to eliminate odours, and blades can be renewed very easily to ensure efficient operation. The Incomatic is priced around 3,000 but many nurseries take out a monthly lease-purchase scheme - paying 95 per month over five years to include purchase and all servicing requirements throughout the period.

Nappy Laundering is a growing service on offer in most parts of the country. The Cotton Fresh Nappy Service which operates in the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire areas receives at least two or three queries every week from nurseries and, in common with most laundering services, offers a special rate for nurseries based on numbers and requirements. The basic service is the delivery of as many fresh nappies as required and the taking away of soiled nappies in return, either once or twice a week.
