RENEW

RENEW

RENEW NSW was first established as the representative of eight regional waste groups, covering 96 Councils in regional and rural NSW, with a population of 1.8 million people.

2014 saw the EPA establish a further seven regional waste groups in the greater Sydney region, adding a further 54 councils and 5.1 million people to the group, which now covers the whole of NSW.

Under the umbrella of RENEW NSW, the groups work together proactively, to improve resource recovery and waste management across the whole of NSW.

RENEW NSW monitors and facilitates improvements to waste management and resource recovery practices in rural, regional and metropolitan areas. It also serves as an advisory body on matters of concern such as infrastructure sharing, resource recovery systems, regional procurement, drop-off centres and other related activities.

Working with state and local government, industry representatives, schools and local residents, the regional waste groups and Regional/Joint Organisations of Councils provide leadership and innovation, driving continuous improvement in sustainable waste and resource management practices.

RENEW NSW’s primary goal is to highlight the differing issues and priorities across the state and implement better waste and resource recovery systems.

Through coordinating and combining these regional waste groups, RENEW NSW works together to find solutions to waste issues, to improve recycling rates and initiate best practice waste management in NSW.

      1. The North East Waste (NEW)
      2. Midwaste
      3. Northern Inland Regional Waste (NIRW)
      4. NetWaste
      5. Riverina Regional Organisation of Councils (RivRoc)
      6. Murray Regional Organisation of Councils (MurrayRoc)
      7. Riverina Eastern Regional Organisation of Councils (REROC)
      8. Canberra Region Joint Organisation – (CBRJO)

To keep your favourite loaf fresh throughout the week, we have some simple storage DOs and DON'Ts, courtesy of our friends at @LFHWUK.

DO: store in a cool, dark and dry place, like a bread bin or cupboard, or in original packaging.

DON'T: store in the fridge – it will make it go stale quicker!

DO: FREEZE your bread!

DON'T: use if mould is present! Most packaged bread can be eaten two days to up to a week after the best before date.

DO: clean your bread bin or cupboard regularly to get rid of mould spores.
