Draft NSW Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Strategy 2017-2021

The EPA would like to know what you think about the draft NSW Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Strategy 2017-2021.

The NSW Environment Protection Authority’s (EPA) Waste and Resource Recovery (WARR) Strategy 2014–21 sets targets for the diversion of waste from landfill, increasing from 63% in 2014/15 to 75% by 2021. To achieve these targets significant investment is required to develop the infrastructure needed to process the increase in the volume of waste forecast to be generated across the state. This strategy has been developed to assist councils and waste industry participants to understand the expected increase in waste streams and to plan to ensure sufficient infrastructure capacity is available to process the projected volumes.
