What's this about?

The NSW 20-Year Waste Strategy is a whole-of-government initiative to provide a long-term strategic direction for communities, industry and all levels of government to work together to build services and markets for waste resources.

An issues paper Cleaning Up Our Act: The Future for Waste and Resource Recovery in NSW will help shape the development of the 20-Year Waste Strategy.

The issues paper sets out the case for action and outlines options that could support the shift towards a circular economy.

The issues paper is seeking feedback on options to:

  • generate less waste
  • improve collection and sorting
  • plan for future infrastructure
  • create end markets
