Western Sydney Regional Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy 2022-27 (‘the Strategy’) is a collaboration between eight councils and WSROC to transition towards a circular economy.

Since 2014, Western Sydney councils have successfully developed and delivered two regional waste strategies, fostering a successful and collaborative working relationship. The strategy not only builds on the lessons and achievements from the previous strategies to ensure continuous improvements but reflects the significant changes in the management of waste in Australia.

It includes integrating the objectives and directives of the NSW Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy 2041 (WASM) as well as the wider policy and industry context and seeks to maximise funding opportunities underpinned by the WASM Strategy to deliver initiatives to support councils.

Strategy Vision:

Working together to shape Western Sydney’s future where the region is supported to avoid waste, circulate materials in the economy and protect our communities and environment from waste pollution.Western Sydney Regional Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy 2022 27 small
