MidWaste Regional Waste Forum comprises five councils located on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, including Bellingen Shire, Coffs Harbour City, Nambucca Shire, Kempsey Shire, and Port Macquarie-Hastings Council. Together, the five councils encompass 21,179 square kilometres.
Major industries in the region are farming, logging and tourism. Seasonal variations in population, due to the influx of tourists during the peak holiday periods, add a level of complexity to the region’s waste management. Waste generated from the additional population influences both the composition and the quantity of waste generated during the holiday seasons.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
The Waste Hierarchy sets up a framework for reducing our waste. For items you really do need to dispose of, you can help us reduce what goes to landfill by using the services you can find in these pages (or on your council website) available to ensure we can recycle or appropriately dispose of all materials.
