NSW Government – Waste avoidance and resource recovery in NSW


Information website









Aims to develop and implement a comprehensive waste strategy for NSW. Their site contains links to directories, tools and reports on waste management.

Avoidance encourages the community, industry and government to reduce the amount of virgin materials extracted and used, to reduce the amount of waste generated and to be more efficient in the use of resources.

Resource recovery maximises the options for reuse, recycling, reprocessing and energy recovery at the highest net value of the recovered material. This encourages the efficient use of recovered resources while supporting the principles of improved environmental outcomes and ecologically sustainable development. Resource recovery can also embrace new and emerging technologies.
