Ok, so I have an unusual question that I would appreciate some help with...
I recently moved into a (very large) apartment building that has a trash shoot in the hallway on each floor. I find it's really convenient for disposing of my trash, especially my diapers, since I don't have to take the elevator ride of shame down to the trashroom with a trashbag full of used diapers. I had never really examined the shoot itself in any depth until today, when I was reading a list of things that should and should not go down the shoot. Turns out, it's an INCINERATOR!
So here's the question: should I continue to throw my diapers down there to be burnt, or should I start to take them down to the real garbage? The list of things not to throw down the shoot includes wire hangers, other metal inflammables, and plastics recyclables, I presume because the metal won't burn and because the plastic should go in the recycling. But what about diapers? Are they more of an environmental hazard being burnt than being throw away? Presumably, since I see people throw plastic bags down there all the time, the fumes aren't killing my neighbors. And I personally find the idea of burning my diapers strangely appealing.
Thoughts? Anyone with any incinerator experience?
