Wet wipes

Find out how to dispose of wet wipes.


Baby wipes, cosmetics, bathroom cleaning wipes and moist toilet tissues are not recyclable and not flushable, even though some labels say they are!

You should always put them in your household rubbish bin.

How you dispose of the wet wipe packaging depends on the type of material it is: You cannot recycle combined material packaging (such as plastic and metal, or soft plastic and hard plastic). It needs to go in your general rubbish bin, unless you can separate out the materials. 

You can recycle hard plastic packaging at any Suffolk Recycling Centre in the rigid plastic container.
