Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy
Reducing waste generation and keeping materials circulating within the economy are priorities for NSW. To meet this challenge, the EPA prepares a new Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery (WARR) Strategy every 5 years.
The NSW Government has extended the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative with a further $337 million over 4 years from 2017-21. Waste Less, Recycle More provides funding for business recycling, organics collections, market development, managing problem wastes, new waste infrastructure, local councils and programs to tackle illegal dumping and litter.
Resource recovery orders and resource recovery exemptions allow some wastes to be beneficially and safely re-used independent of the usual NSW laws that control waste.
