Squamish Cloth Diaper Incentive Program

49 Signatures Goal: 100

Squamish is at a critical junction as the current landfill is reaching capacity. Each child who wears disposable diapers contributes one tonne of waste into the landfill. By usingcloth diapers, families can reducethis waste, and also reduceleachate from human waste, a potential health hazard.

The current landfill fees are $80/tonne and expected to rise considerably after the necessary landfill upgrades. Squamish council can save taxpayer money, reduce landfill waste, promote sustainable growth, and encourage positive consumer choices by promoting the use of cloth diapers.

We petition council to adopt a cutting edge policy, the first of its kind in western Canada, by providing incentives to families who choose to use cloth diapers. Specifically, we urge council to offer families a 25% rebate on cloth diaper purchases (up to $50), to be given in the form of Squamish Regional Transit Passes, Brennan Park facility credits, or some other form of public community activity incentives.
