NetWaste is a voluntary regional waste group formed in 1995 to provide collaborative approaches to waste and resource management. The organisation is funded primarily through the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and has secure funding to June 2020.
During the past two decades, our focus has evolved. Our initial aim was to ensure the essential waste service requirements were met and to deliver service efficiencies through regional contracts. NetWaste now delivers outcomes beyond regional service arrangements, through targeted waste management projects, education and community engagement programs, and member Council enablement.
Covering almost 40% of the state, benefits are delivered to 26 member councils in regional NSW including: Bathurst, Blayney, Blue Mountains, Bogan, Bourke, Brewarrina, Broken Hill, Cabonne, Central Darling, Cobar, Coonamble, Cowra, Dubbo Regional, Forbes, Gilgandra, Lachlan, Lithgow, Midwestern, Narromine, Oberon, Orange, Parkes, Walgett, Warren, Warrumbungle, Weddin.
