How do you dispose of your baby's diapers?

Especially the dirty ones?

I usually throw them in the trash but out side in the garage the dirty ones I mean but I wrap it in a walmart bag or a used up bread bag or baggie then I close it and toss it in the trash. Any other ideas girls, Thanks!

  • we have a very small trash can right outside our sliding door (on the side of our house). We empty it into the dumpster usually daily- except when dh is way busy and I'm a slacker that day, then it will go 2 days, but I never let it go more than two.

    When I'm at someone else's house I'll wrap it in a fragrance baggie or a grocery bag and take it to their main outside garbage.

  • I use the diaper champ. works pretty well at keeping the smells in if you are sure to change it before it gets full. For the relaly stinky diapers, I tie up in a bag first, then put in. The diaper champ isn't terribly expenisve and uses regular trash bags.

  • I wash them. Cold rinse, hot wash, rinse, rinse, dry. VOILA! No stains or smell and they are good to go again.

  • I have a Diaper Genie II. When it gets full, I take the bag out to the trash receptacle. I take out about 2 bags of dirty diapers per week, and go through 2 Diaper Genie refills per month.

  • I usually just throw them in a pile in the corner of the room. At the end of the week, I put them out for the garbage man.

  • Diaper Genie II - LOVE IT. Holds a ton of diapers!! The trashbags are about $5. We have a large, curious dog -- the Genie II also keeps her away and contains the smell! I think the can was about $30.
