Why we are running the trial

The rebate provides an incentive for residents to use reusable nappy and sanitary products and reduce waste to landfill.

Single use nappies, tampons and pads make up approximately 8% by weight of the average Inner West garbage bin (Kerbside audits 2019).

The rebates are being offered as an incentive to help reduce the upfront costs of reusable options and encourage a shift away from single-use products, saving you money in the long-term.
