There are a range of environmental, financial and health benefits associated with using reusable nappies.

  • On average, a child will use 6000 disposable nappies before they are toilet trained.
  • Babies require around 500 nappy changes just in their first 6 weeks of life.
  • 5.6 million disposable nappies* are used each day in Australia.
  • This adds up to more than 2 billion nappies per year. (*2009 IBIS World Australia report).

Halve Waste have a collection of reusable items including cloth nappies that are demonstrated at our cloth nappy workshops. We offer free information and guidance on how to choose and use cloth nappies and can also demonstrate directly to residents on request.

Halve Waste Cloth Nappy Rebate Program 

Halve Waste Campaign

Halve Waste is a waste reduction campaign that is an initiative of AlburyCity Council, City of Wodonga and the Shires of Indigo, Federation, Greater Hume and Towong. Launched at Albury Waste Management Centre (AWMC) in June 2010, Halve Waste was designed to engage all sectors of the community to reduce waste and increase recycling in the Halve Waste regions and bringing businesses, schools, community groups and residents together to face waste challenges head on to decrease waste to landfill.. 

Halve Waste’s objectives are to:

  1. Reduce the region’s waste by active recycling
  2. Engage and inform the community about waste management
  3. Divert 80% of our region’s waste from landfill (on 2010 levels) by 2030.

Using cloth nappies rather than disposable nappies is one way you can contribute to achieving these aims.

Purpose of the Cloth Nappy Rebate Program

Our Cloth Nappy Rebate Program offers Halve Waste residents the opportunity to access financial assistance in support for using cloth nappies.

Halve Waste residents can receive back half of the cost of cloth nappies up to the value of $100 per household. Example: Spend $200, receive $100 rebate. Halve Waste residents may receive half of the cost on reusable Nappy products back up to the value of $100. Minimum spend of $50. Example: Spend $50, receive $25 rebate.

Purchases are eligible for the rebate from July 1 – June 30 each year but applications will only be received and processed from January 1, 2022 until June 30, 2022.

The rebate is on a first in first served basis, until funds are exhausted. Each Council area has a set amount of funding available therefore, once the funding is allocated, no more funding can be provided regardless of the eligibility of application.
