Can disposable baby diapers be recycled? Are there any facilities that exist where you can drop off your babies disposable diapers to be recycled?

I've heard of some facilities and places where they buy the disposable diapers for recycling and pay you per pound or per bag of the disposable diapers.

They only exist or existed in a few places and aren't everywhere. I would call up your recycling company or trash company and find out if they know of any diaper recycling places in your area.

I'm not sure if they still exist but they just might.

I remember reading on an online news website about 5 years ago that there were some recycling centers for disposable diapers in the State of California.

I have no idea if these facilities still exist or not but you might look around online and see.
