The seminar will discuss the significant changes in the pipeline and issues for NSW's waste regulation:

  • Removal of the defunct NSW Proximity Principle with moves to replace it by a Nationally based framework.
  • Long haul transport of waste from Sydney to Queensland with pressure to keep it local and levy paying.
  • The recently released draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy identifies major gaps.  Can they be filled?
  • Rescuing recycling in NSW is another topic as China bans imports cutting into already poor recyclate markets.

ASBG offers a morning seminar on the current issues affecting waste management in NSW. Following this is the afternoon workshop on Waste Classification and Use of Resource Recovery Exemptions.
