Why can’t disposable diapers be less, well, disposable?

We believe they can. With our optional REDYPER™ program families can opt into curbside pickups or ship their soiled products back to us for responsible disposal.

Options that fit you

Our REDYPER™ service is offered in 21 cities and growing with a convenient curbside pickup.

Everywhere else, our unique mail-away option is available for an additional fee through our exclusive partnership with TerraCycle.

Curbside Pickup

Our drivers will pickup your soiled diapers and wipes on a set bi-weekly schedule. Simply leave the bag on your doorstep before 6am and they wil be transported to our sorting facility.

The diapers you wore as a baby are still in a landfill somewhere.

The diapers you wore as a baby are still in a landfill somewhere.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. The average child uses more than 3,700 diapers by the time they’re potty trained. Millions of pounds of dirty diapers are added to landfills each week. Multiply that by the 500 years it takes for diapers to degrade, and you’ve got a big messy problem. 

We believe children deserve a kinder future – filled with tall trees, fresh air and thriving biodiversity. And that’s why we developed our signature REDYPER™ program. Offered in 21 cities and counting, we’ll pick up your used diapers, for an additional fee, and turn them into something useful. And the best part? We’ve made it as easy as possible for parents – so you can feel good about the diapers you use, even when life gets chaotic.

How to REDYPER

Roll up your dirty diapers, training pants and wipes.

Store them in approved compostable bags.

Leave the bag on your doorstep on your set schedule.

Our drivers pick them up and take them away.

We’ve saved more than 10 million pounds of diapers from landfills and turned them into something useful. Join us and help protect your baby’s future with every diaper they use.

How does composting differ from recycling?

Recycling involves reprocessing old materials into new raw materials, which can later be used to create new products. Glass, plastic, paper, textiles, and metals are commonly recycled.

Composting is the natural decaying of biodegradable organic material, producing nutrient rich top-soil. The composting process occurs normally in nature, but very slowly (measured in years).

Our Industrial Composting process accelerates the natural process of decomposition by actively controlling the composting conditions (temperatures, aeration, carbon, and nitrogen content) that allow aerobic bacteria to thrive, producing the end product in as little as 14 weeks.

What can't get composted will get filtered out before compost is used for commercial purposes.

Here are some tips for making the most of REDYPER Local: 

LOOK FOR YOUR WELCOME KIT
 

When you sign up for REDYPER Local, we’ll send you a welcome kit that comes with a starter roll of DYPER compostable bags. 

ALWAYS USE DYPER COMPOSTABLE BAGS FOR YOUR PICKUP

We can only accept pickups that use our DYPER compostable bags. If you use a plastic bag or a compostable bag from another brand, our drivers won’t be able to complete your pickup request.

EMAIL US WITH ANY SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS

If you live in a gated community with an access code or have other instructions our pickup drivers need to know, send us an email at redyper@dyper.com with the details. Our goal is to make your REDYPER pickup process as seamless as possible. 

MARK YOUR SCHEDULED PICKUP DATES

You can view your pickup dates at any time in your account. Pickups in each local area occur on a set date every other week, which cannot be changed. 

If you have any issues with your pickup request, email us at redyper@dyper.comand we’re happy to help. 

WE’LL ALWAYS SEND YOU EMAIL REMINDERS

Having a young child at home can be wonderful, joyful – and hectic. But we won’t let you forget an upcoming pickup. Two days before your pickup appointment, we’ll send you a reminder email, so you’ll always have a head start on getting things ready.

LEAVE YOUR REDYPER PICKUP AT YOUR FRONT DOOR

The night before your pickup date, place your compostable DYPER bag full of used DYPER diapers in front of your door, or within a few feet and in plain view. Our drivers don’t call, ring doorbells, or look into unmarked bins or buckets for your REDYPER bags. Please note there is a 6 bag limit per pickup. 

If you do need to use a bin or a bucket, due to wildlife or local regulations, email us at redyper@dyper.com so we can alert our driver. Make sure your container is clearly labeled DYPER and follow the same instructions as above. 

NEED TO SKIP OR CANCEL A PICKUP REQUEST? 

Pickups and pickup charges can’t be skipped, canceled, or refunded at this time. REDYPER Local operates like your local trash service. The drivers drive each route in full on the specified day, every other week, regardless of individual customers being out of town, forgetting to put bags out, etc. This allows us to keep costs low and run the program for years to come. 

WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOUR BAG RIPS?
 

As you can imagine, ripped bags are a liability for our pickup drivers. If your bag rips, please double bag it in a second DYPER compostable bag. Our drivers will only pick up the green DYPER compostable bags from your door, and only if they are unripped. 

WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU MISS A PICKUP? 

Our drivers run pickup routes from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on your local pickup day. They may show up anytime between those hours, so be sure to put your bag out the night before. 

If a driver stops by and your DYPER pickup isn’t out, they will leave a “Sorry we missed you!” note on your door. If you have any issues or questions with your pickups, email us at redyper@dyper.com and we can assist you personally. 

HOW TO CANCEL REDYPER LOCAL

To cancel your REDYPER Local service at any time, for any reason, just log in to your account. If you have any trouble with your cancellation, email us at redyper@dyper.com, and we’ll connect you to a real person who can help.
