Save Our Recycling

Save Our Recycling logo

NSW’s local government sector has launched a campaign to solve a worsening recycling and waste crisis – at no extra cost to taxpayers.

The Save Our Recycling Campaign, launched at the local government annual conference in Albury in October 2018, calls on the State Government to re-invest the entire $727 million it collects from the waste levy each year in waste management and recycling.

It is critical that NSW develops its on-shore processing capacity for recycled materials, rather than shipping waste to countries such as China.
