Toilet paper is dry waste. Dry garbage, i.e. other garbage, refers to other domestic wastes except recyclables, hazardous garbage and kitchen waste (wet garbage). Toilet paper can not be recycled because of its strong water solubility, and it can not be recycled after being polluted. Therefore, the contaminated toilet paper and napkin should belong to other garbage.
Garbage can be divided into recyclable garbage, kitchen waste, hazardous garbage and other garbage. Among them, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste belong to non recyclable waste.
