Outcomes of the Reusable Nappy Feasibility Study

The Reusable Nappy Feasibility Study Survey closed for responses on 21 February.

The Feasibility Study Final Report and Executive Summary are now available.

What is the Reusable Nappy Project?

Yarra Ranges Council is one of 12 Councils working together to research and understand how to implement a best practice reusable nappy program to reduce waste sent to landfill.

The Best Practice Reusable Nappy Program – Feasibility Study has been awarded $80,000 from Sustainability Victoria, through the Victorian Government’s Recycling Victoria Councils Fund.

The feasibility study will engage with parents to:

  • understand barriers to using reusable nappies;
  • benchmark existing programs from other Councils;
  • understand parents’ needs; and
  • evaluate the effectiveness of programs to reduce waste and change behaviour.

The collaborative campaign between councils hopes to:

  • understand and break down barriers to using reusable nappies in different parent demographics;
  • allow for the sharing of costs and resources; and
  • increase the likelihood of an ongoing reusable program.

Participating councils include Bayside City Council, Boroondara City Council, Glen Eira City Council, City of Greater Dandenong, Knox City Council, Maribyrnong City Council, Maroondah City Council, City of Monash, Moonee Valley City Council, Nillumbik Shire Council, Stonnington City Council and Yarra Ranges Council.
