Voluntary regional waste groups
With funding support from the EPA, Renew NSW represents 8 voluntary regional waste management groups (VRWGs). Renew NSW covers 96 councils and 1.8 million people in rural and regional NSW. The groups develop and deliver collaborative projects to implement their regional waste strategies and to improve waste management and resource recovery practices in rural and regional areas of NSW.
The VRWGs were formalised in 2002. Over the past 12 years the groups have successfully facilitated cross-regional collaboration, improved service delivery in regional and rural areas, developed consistent research methods, shared skills and resources and negotiated cost-effective contracts.
Under the umbrella of Renew NSW, the groups are:
