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.
