Nappies and Sanitary Products Rebate Application
Ballarat residents are able to claim some of the cost of buying cloth nappies, reusable period products, and reusable maternity breast pads. The six-month trial aims to help with some of the costs of buying these sustainable items.
Households can apply for:
- 50% of the purchase price, up to $100, for reusable cloth nappy products
- 50% of the purchase price, up to $100, for reusable sanitary products, and
- 50% of the purchase price, up to $50, for reusable breast pads.
Disposable nappies and sanitary products are one of the state’s biggest landfill issues. The City of Ballarat sends about 8 million nappies to landfill each year. This rebate encourages our residents to think and act sustainably as our population grows.
