North East Waste is the regional waste group representing our seven local councils across the Northern Rivers. Funded by the member councils and the NSW Environmental Protection Authority, the group aims to achieve the development and implementation of local and regionally based solutions to waste management. North East Waste provides free support and engagement activities to business, householders, community organisations and schools to better manage their waste and recycling and help move the region to a more circular approach to resource recovery.
The Northern Rivers is one of the strongest resource recovery regions in NSW, reflecting our community’s respect for the environment and commitment to championing sustainable principles. The Northern Rivers NSW brand is proud to help facilitate our Councils and community to achieve waste avoidance and resource recovery outcomes.
