Waste or resource?

MidWaste Regional Waste Forum (MidWaste) comprises six Councils located on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales working collectively to strategically manage waste on a regional scale.

Waste or Resource?

While it is inevitable that some materials, in our current economy, end up as waste, it is important to remember that all materials are actually resources and should be managed accordingly. Governments at all levels are increasingly focused on how to move from our current linear model of consumption (take, make, dispose) and towards a circular model (where the aim is to design waste out of the system).

What can you do?

The Waste Hierarchy sets up a framework for reducing our waste.

For items you really do need to dispose of, you can help us reduce what goes to landfill by using the services you can find in these pages (or on your council website) available to ensure we can recycle or appropriately dispose of all materials.


With great regret MidWaste has decided to cancel all scheduled workshops for the safety of our participants and facilitators.

We will review the COVID-19 situation on a regular basis to reassess our ability to provide our range of educational workshops to you all.

Thanks for understanding and stay safe and well.

National Asbestos Awareness Week is almost over, but year-round asbestos awareness is essential. When you’re fixing up your place, remember to think twice about asbestos. Find out if your home was built before 1990. Contact a licensed asbestos professional at any time for advice on locating, managing or removing asbestos. Remember, like plumbing and electrical work, work that might disturb asbestos is best left to the experts. We need to prevent exposure to asbestos fibres to eliminate asbestos-related diseases. Contact your local Council for more information on how to correctly deal with and dispose of asbestos: Bellingen Shire Council – Raleigh Waste Management Centre: 6655 3777 @coffscouncil – Englands Road Resource Recovery Park: 6648 4000 Kempsey Shire Council – Kempsey Waste Management Centre: 0428 285 039 MidCoast Council – Taree Waste Management Centre: 6551 5266, Gloucester Waste Management Centre: 6538 5265, Stroud Waste Management Centre: 4994 5699 Nambucca Valley Council – Nambucca Waste Management Facility: 6568 2170 Port Macquarie Hastings Council – Cairncross Waste Management Facility: 6585 0738 Find out more at www.asbestos.nsw.gov.au ...
