The article reports that the Local Government Association (LGA) is calling for disposable diaper manufacturers to pay up the cleaning of disposable diaper wastes in Great Britain. According to Paul Bettison, chairman of the LGA Environment Board, it is time for diaper manufacturers to take full responsibility for the life cycle of their products. He added that it is totally unacceptable that the council tax payer is picking up the bill for landfilling disposable diapers. He suggests that reusable diapers are the only way to prevent the disposable diaper landfill problem.
