Nappy laundry service

Rossendale nappy service

One baby will use over 5,000 disposable nappies in its lifetime. At the moment all these nappies are sent to landfill sites where the plastic in them may take hundreds of years to break down. Disposable nappies can also take up a lot of room in your green wheelie bin.

For the last 12 months Rossendale has had a nappy laundering service operating in the area.

Nappies For Real will deliver a pack of clean nappies and collect the dirty ones once a week.

If you would like to know more or see a demonstration of the Nappies For Real service please telephone 01782 816902.
