MidWaste Regional Waste Forum delivers a range of valuable programs to our regional communities through our 6 dedicated member Councils. The projects that we undertake each year are a direct result of the MidWaste Regional Waste Strategy and Action Plan.
The NSW EPA provides MidWaste with funding to develop and implement projects based on our Regional Waste Strategy and Action Plan. MidWaste reports on the outcomes, achievements and resource recovery on an annual basis with progress updates on a quarterly basis. Additional funding is also sourced from specific grant programs as deemed appropriate and beneficial for our region.
Member Councils have flexibility regarding their level of involvement in MidWaste programs and projects, particularly those which involve capital and/or operational expenditure by their Council.
Consultation on specific actions and programs will be undertaken to ensure the outcomes of strategy projects meet community needs and expectations. Ongoing consultation with Councils and the community is important to understanding challenges in the region, to providing effective and meaningful programs, and to deliver successful regional waste management and resource recovery outcomes.

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.
