Reuse Reduce RecycleMidwaste Regional Waste Forum (Midwaste) comprises eight Councils located on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. Bellingen Shire, Coffs Harbour City and Nambucca Shire form the northern sub-region, Kempsey Shire and Port Macquarie-Hastings form the mid sub-region and Gloucester Shire, Great Lakes and Greater Taree City comprise the southern sub-region. Together, the 8 Midwaste Councils encompass approximately 21,000 square kilometres.

Major industries in the region are farming and logging and the coast is a popular destination for tourists, families and retirees. Seasonal variations in population, due to the influx of tourists during the peak holiday periods, add a level of complexity to the region’s waste management. Waste generated from the additional population influences both the composition and the quantity of waste generated during the holiday seasons.

MIDWASTE is Proudly supported by these regional councils
Kempsey Shire Council
Gloucester Shire Council
Coffs Harbour City Council
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council
Bellingen Shire Council
Greater Taree City Council
Nambucca Shire Council
Great Lakes Council

This program is supported by the NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
