What goes where






Our Facebook Posts

MIDWASTE would love your input about where the worst litter spots are (Mid North Coast only please), and who is out and about cleaning it up.
We’re hoping to run more litter reduction projects and this information will help support our funding application.

We know a lot of you do pick up litter, sometimes in organised groups at the same spot every month, sometimes just when you’re out walking the dog and you grab a few bits of litter on the way. It all adds up, and we want to know what’s happening so we can acknowledge and support it.

Please reply to tell us where you see a lot of litter, and what you (or others you see) are picking up.

Anna ShieldsThe worst littered area is at the bypass interchange outside the Puma service station south of Kempsey. It's disgustingly embarrassing. Not sure if Puma or the RMS picks it up as it's a high risk area. A solution is needed.

Midwaste Regional Waste Forum shared ABC TV's War On Waste - Trailer.

This show will be a good wake up call to us all about our own contribution to the problem and what we can do about it.

We can all make a big difference with a few small changes to what we do and how we think about 'stuff'. Empowering.

Reuse Reduce RecycleMidwaste Regional Waste Forum (Midwaste) comprises six 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 Mid Coast Council comprise the southern sub-region. Together, the 6 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
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council
Coffs Harbour City Council
Gloucester Region
Bellingen Shire Council
Midcoast Council - Taree region

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