Guide for Reuse, Repair, Recycling, and Safe Disposal
for Alameda County, Contra Costa County, and the City of Palo Alto

What do I do with:



Disposable Diapers & Wipes - New

Disposable diapers contain absorbent chemicals and are thrown away after use for babies or adults. Disposable wipes are a disposable moistened, antiseptic, paper towel, usually supplied in a plastic drum or packet, often used for cleaning the skin of babies or children.

Consider donation of new and partially-used packages of diapers and new wipes to local families and community organizations. Posting on NextDoor, Craigslist, FreeCycle, etc.
