Council has identified a new initiative to encourage the reduction of landfill through the 'Going Green Rebate' program.
This program aims to provide a rebate for the purchase of cloth nappies and reusable sanitary items in a bid to lessen the burden on landfill.
3.75 million disposable nappies are used each day in Australia and New Zealand.
Disposable nappies take up to 150 years to break down in landfill.
Residents living in the Litchfield Municipality can apply for either one or both of the rebates up to $150 ($100 for cloth nappies, $50 for reusable sanitary items). Terms and conditions apply.
