How should my sister get rid of her childs diapers with no trash service?

What parents do with disposable diapers that live out in the country and don’t have trash service? My sister is pregnant and lives way out where trash services are not offered. She, not pro cloth diapers, so we are trying to figure out how she can get rid of the diapers, since they typically burn their trash and diapers don’t burn.

Usually most counties have a dump they should be able to take them to

DYPER is a company that delivers disposable diapers to you monthly, for an extra fee they’ll send you a box to keep dirty diapers in and they’ll dispose of them for you.

Pay to take trash to town, usually it’s like $10 or so to be able to take trash to the town dumpsters.

If you live in the country just burn them in a burn barrel

Dump the inside into the toilet and flush

As for diapers, I put poop ones in a small.plastic bag tie it up and they go in thier own little trash bag in a trash can with a lid in ky laumdry room…when my normal size trash bag in the kitchen is almost full I put that small bag of stinky diapers in, tie it up & take it to the outside trash bin. I take my trash to the dump twice per week.

we live in boonies and get service you have to pay

Most places have the option where you can take your own trash to the dump yourself and they charge a really small fee as it’s by weight (usually bulk stuff). Maybe see if there’s someone local to you who also takes their trash and you could go in on it?

I cloth diaper though and honestly it’s not hard or even the gross (you end up washing poop from their clothes and then there’s toddler underwear). Personally I’d rather cloth full time (I live in the city and cloth part time) than make an unnecessary trip which costs money plus the financial cost of the diapers. You’re actually supposed to put the poop from each disposable diaper into the toilet too- it says that on all diaper packages.

Our town offers something called Fast Trash, you can bring your bags of trash during a certain time frame in the weekends and pay a set rate per bag. Maybe her town offers something like that?

Going to have to make a weekly dump run.
