Yarra Ranges Council is one of seven Metropolitan Melbourne councils joining together to research and understand how to implement a best practice reusable sanitary and incontinence aid program that reduces waste to landfill, supports people who menstruate and/or experience incontinence and increases the use of reusable products.

We hope to:

  • better understand how we can help reduce the volume of disposable sanitary and incontinence products sent to landfill
  • encourage cost effective and environmentally friendly sanitary and incontinence product choices

This study will recommend a program/s that addresses any current barriers to using reusable products, and increases the use of reusable sanitary and incontinence aids amongst people who menstruate and/or experience incontinence, who without Council support would continue to use disposable aid products. The study is looking for a best practice model that can be implemented by any Council in Victoria.

This online survey is open until 28 February 2023.

This project is funded by Sustainability Victoria's Recycling Victoria Councils Fund, on behalf of the Victorian Government.
