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.

☎️ Don’t risk it. Call a Licenced Asbestos Contractor to check, remove and dispose of asbestos safely.

PPE cannot guarantee your health or safety, but it will help reduce your risk of exposure. It must be selected, worn and removed correctly to be effective. You also need to follow safe work practices to prevent asbestos contaminating everything around you.
