There is a $7.70 registration fee for the workshops, with $5 being refundable on successful Cloth Nappy Rebate application.

Workshops will be run by the Nappy Guru and are facilitated by the City of Melville, City of Fremantle and Town of East Fremantle. You are welcome to attend a workshop held in any of these areas but must apply for the rebate through your respective local council.

What items are eligible for the rebate?

Only modern cloth nappies, such as fitted nappies, all-in-one nappies, all-in-two nappies, pocket nappies, night nappies, swim nappies, terry towelling/prefold nappies and incontinence wear are eligible. You can also claim inserts, boosters, liners and fasteners with the purchase of nappies, just not as stand-alone items.

Accessories such as wet bags, nappy pods, strainers/buckets/pails, laundry products, change mats, wipes, nappy rash cream, nappy change harness, swaddles and breast/nursing pads and are not eligible for the rebate.

If ineligible items are on the receipt along with eligible items, the rebate will only be applied to the eligible items rather than the total amount.

I already use cloth nappies and know all about them. I want to purchase more cloth nappies utilising the rebate. Do I have to attend the workshop?

Wonderful! Thank you for choosing to reuse!

The Cloth Nappy Rebate has been designed to support:

  • people making decisions about nappy use in the future or
  • people who are currently using disposable nappies

in an effort to further reduce disposable nappies going to landfill in the City of Melville.

If you want to apply for the rebate, you must attend a workshop. This ensures you have the information and support needed to successfully transition to using cloth nappies.

If you’re already using cloth nappies and know lots about them but want to apply for the rebate, you are more than welcome to apply, but you need to attend the workshop. You never know, you may learn something new!
