Have you used reusable nappies in the past five years?
Maybe you've tried then but stopped, or you're just curious to find out more?
Are disposable nappies your thing?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Council would like to hear from you.
Approximately two billion disposable nappies end up in landfill each year in Australia and it can take up to 500 years for nappies to break down. One of Council’s key Waste and Litter Strategy objectives is to reduce waste from landfill and to achieve better environmental outcomes. We recognise that there are many households in our community who do use disposable nappies and could be encouraged towards cloth nappies as a more environmentally sound alternative.
Greater Dandenong, in partnership with 11 other Melbourne metropolitan councils received grant funding of $80,000 from Sustainability Victoria to conduct a feasibility study on the use of nappies.
Your input will support research on a reusable nappy program that aims to reduce household waste that ends up in landfill.
With your help, we can gain valuable insights into how Council can better support residents to make environmentally-friendly choices.
If you would like to provide more information, you can also take part in an interview with the project team, contact Council’s Waste Team on 8571 1000.
This project is supported by the Recycling Victoria Councils Fund, delivered by Sustainability Victoria on behalf of the Victorian Government.
