When waste is not properly managed, it can contribute to pollution, climate change, and the loss of natural resources. Additionally, improper waste management can lead to health hazards for both humans and animals. In a City within a World Heritage National Park, responsible waste management is more important than ever.
With even small changes to your personal waste management methods, you can significantly reduce your environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable future. Reducing waste generation and practicing resource efficiency can lead to a more circular economy and create new business opportunities and jobs.
The Waste Working Group focuses on waste education for Blue Mountains individuals, and advocates for better waste management policies and infrastructure in the Blue Mountains region.
