Now is the time to register your site for Clean Up Australia Day! When you do, you’ll be sent a kit with bags, gloves, safety vest, posters, certificates to thank participants, and all the information you need to run the clean up. Make sure you register soon so the kit can get to you in time!
Remember, your clean up site doesn’t have to be huge, or attract dozens of volunteers. The clean up can be limited to just a couple of hours… Every little bit counts!
Schools and businesses can get involved too. The Schools Clean Up Day is 3rd March, and the Business Clean Up Day is 28 February. For all the details see www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au MidCoast Council Kempsey Shire Council Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Coffs Coast Waste Services

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.
