The Australian Cloth Nappy Rebate Guide

To support eco-friendly practices, many councils in Australia now offer rebates for cloth nappies and reusable menstrual cloth pads. Here, we have a detailed list of these forward-thinking councils, helping you take advantage of these offers and reduce household waste.

What if your local council doesn’t yet provide such rebates? At the end of this blog, we’ve also provided some tips on how you can approach your council to initiate a similar rebate system.

What can you do if your council doesn’t offer a rebate scheme?

As we previously mentioned, local councils have plenty to gain in reducing waste caused by disposable nappies and sanitary products. A 2022 study led by Monash Council, with 12 other councils collaborating, estimated “that 5% to 15% of household landfill bins contain disposable nappies (by weight)”.

Some steps you can take as a resident of your council to begin a cloth nappy and reusable menstrual product rebate:

Educate and Advocate
A massive step towards effecting change is educating yourself and others about the issue. Understand the environmental and financial benefits of cloth nappies and the impact of disposable ones.

Share this knowledge with your friends, family, and community. Advocacy is key in creating the demand necessary to instigate policy change. Don’t underestimate the impact you can have and the flow-on effect that can occur by having regular conversations.

Sign or start a petition
The Rogue Ginger has links for all the current petitions for local councils to begin rebates. Find out more here If there isn’t one for your council, consider starting one yourself.

Contact your Council
Most councils now have sustainability departments these days. Touch base with them introducing yourself and why you think introducing a rebate is important.

Point out councils or communities that have successfully implemented a cloth nappy rebate scheme and its positive impact. Showing it has been done successfully elsewhere can help convince your local council that it’s feasible and beneficial for the community and environment.

Remember, change often takes time, and persistence is key. Keep advocating for what you believe in; with time, hopefully we’ll begin to see progress.

We have done our best to provide the most current information possible, but we recommend double-checking with your local council to ensure all the information we have provided is current before proceeding with a rebate. If there have been any developments on any of these rebates, please let Green Things know at [email protected] so we can update our community.
