Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Reusable sanitary and incontinence products

We are developing a feasibility study for local government reusable sanitary and incontinence programs together with 6 other local councils.

In Australia, approximately 660 million disposable nappies/diapers, and sanitary and incontinence products go to landfill each year. These products account for between 5 and 15 percent of all household waste sent to landfill.

In this study, we hope to:

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

Share your experience

We invite you to share your experience with sanitary/incontinence products by taking part in this survey to help us understand:

  • The type of sanitary/incontinence products you currently use
  • Whether you know about other options for disposable sanitary/incontinence products
  • If you have used reusable sanitary/incontinence products. Or would like to know more about them.

To take part, please complete the online survey by 20 December 2022.

This project is supported by the Recycling Victoria Councils Fund, delivered by Sustainability Victoria, on behalf of the Victorian Government.
