Please find below a range of resources related to the Circular Economy, maximising reuse, encouraging recycling and managing waste within Australia.
The National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO) commends the Government on launching its inquiry into Australia’s Waste Management and Recycling Industries.
In particular, its focus on innovative solutions to ensure Australia responds to global recycling market changes and identifies ways to effectively reduce waste, and accelerate reuse, repair and recycling while creating new jobs, growth and social inclusion.
NACRO is committed to supporting and partnering with the Government in accelerating innovative solutions, with specific emphasis on our area of influence and authority, and has lodged this submission.
NACRO’s submission has been approved for publication by the Government, and is also available live on the Inquiry website.
NACRO’s 3-Point Plan to tackle Illegal Dumping at Charities
NACRO is calling on all Australian governments to invest just $10 for every tonne of illegally dumped and unusable donations that charities have to send to landfill each year. With that investment from each State Government matched by the Federal Government, we can end dumping at charities through three proven interventions. Please see NACRO’s policy position and 3-Point Plan here.
