On average, children use 5,000 to 6,000 disposable nappies before becoming toilet trained.
Our 2021 waste audit found that disposable nappies and period products made up 10% of Merri-bek garbage bins.
We want to support our residents cut waste to landfill, by making the switch to reusables. So we are trialling a subsidy for reusable cloth nappies and period products.
How much is the subsidy?
From April 2022 to March 2023 eligible residents can claim:
- $100 per household per year for cloth nappies and accessories;
- $35 per resident per year for reusable period products.
How it works

This is a pilot program, so adjustments to supply may be needed to meet demand.
