Waste Management



Northern Sydney Regional Waste Strategy 2014-21

Waste 2015_1

Effective municipal solid waste management is a crucial responsibility of councils in the NSROC region as a requirement of the Local Government Act 1993.  Collectively the seven councils generate approximately 250,000 tonnes of domestic waste per year.

The Councils in the NSROC region have a history of cooperation in waste management. In 2014 the seven councils developed and subsequently adopted the Northern Sydney Regional Waste Strategy.

A Summary of the Strategy is available here NSROC Waste Strategy 2014-21 while a more detailed Direction Report can be found here NSROC Directions Report 2014 and Regional Waste Profile can be found here NSROC Regional Waste Profile 2014.
