Every piece of information regarding yellow waste collection is made up of 75% real nappies promotions. How do you think that makes adults with life long medical conditions feel? It feels as if you are implying (possibly unintentionally) that these adults are the same as babies. They are not! There is no choice of alternative products for adults, and life long conditions can last 50 years+. You provide bags that are so thin you can read a book through them, leading to lack of privacy and dignity and then you refuse to collect bags every week. You need to realise that adults are not the same as babies and amend all your literature and reintroduce weekly collections for adults which in any decent society would be weekly.

We promote the use of real nappies as an alternative to disposable nappies as these not only reduce waste but can also save residents with children money. We appreciate that these do not meet everyone's needs but it offers a viable solution for some. The decision to collect hygiene waste fortnightly was not taken lightly and was part of a range of changes that were necessary to meet the budget constraints going forward.

I am sick and tired of hearing council going on about real nappies. What about the adults who need to use continence products and are now forced to keep disgusting smelly waste for two weeks? Babies use nappies for a couple of years but adults use continence products for life. You need to provide a full weekly collection of continence products for the adults who use them. Fortnightly collections of adult yellow bag waste is simply unacceptable.
