REGIONAL WASTE STRATEGY

regional waste avoidance & resource recovery strategy

In 2014, as part of the NSW Government’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, regional waste groups were provided support to develop regional Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategies (WARR). 

The MidWaste WARR Strategy 2014- 2021 was reviewed in 2017 and can be downloaded on the link below. 

This strategy is the result of a collaborative effort involving all group members. and will guide regional resource recovery and waste management initiatives until 2021. 

 

MidWaste Regional Strategy

MIDWASTE REGIONAL WASTE AVOIDANCE & RESOURCE RECOVERY STRATEGY 2014-2021

regional implementation plan

The MidWaste 2016-2021 Regional Litter Plan was developed between November 2015 and April 2016 using funding provided by the NSW EPA. 

All member councils contributed quantitative and qualitative data, and staff from a range of council departments were consulted to assist in identification of priority locations and litter items. 

The Plan was updated in August 2017 and December 2018 to reflect changing circumstances, priorities and funding availability.

MidWaste has been successful with applications in 4 funding rounds to support the delivery of this plan. 

MidWaste Annual Reports

MidWaste produces Annual Reports to showcase activities covered during the financial year.

These publications provide a visual snapshot of activities and are provided in addition to the reporting required by the NSW EPA which is excel spreadsheet based and not for public distribution.

Frugal Forest

The Frugal Forest was a community arts project which spanned 3 years across the mid north coast of NSW. 

Developed by artists, musicians and scientists, it embraced community participation through a series of community workshops. The aim was to create an intricately detailed forest installation entirely from stuff that was headed to landfill. 

Why?

Because a forest is s a living example of a sustainable zero-waste system, in which waste is an opportunity and there’s no such thing as a dump. 

MidWaste was a proud supporter of this project.

MidWaste Construction and Demolition Report

MidWaste engaged ASK Waste Management to conduct a review of current legislation, best practice, markets and secondary values of construction and demolition (C&D) materials across the MidWaste region.

A compositional assessment  was conducted at 8 of the 24 facilities in the region. It reviewed both commercial and domestic loads for C&D materials coming in to the facilities as well as considering waste flows an site layout implications. 

For Commercial in Confidence reasons, some of the content of this report has been redacted.
