Rethink Waste aims to improve our efforts at reducing, reusing and
recycling in order to decrease the amount of waste that ends up as landfill.
Welcome to Rethink Waste
Although we can be great at protecting our environment, research shows that at the current rate of production, Tasmanians generate over 451,000 tonnes of waste each year. Most of this waste ends up in landfill, which is the least favourable waste management option. A lot of this waste can be reused, or treated differently to be reduced, recycled or even avoided altogether.
Rethink Waste Tasmania is a statewide initiative of the Cradle Coast Waste Management Group, the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group and the Southern Waste Strategy Authority. It aims to encourage the Tasmanian community to rethink what we do with our waste in order to continue to improve our environment and reduce the burden on landfill.
It’s not hard. By rethinking what we do with our waste, we can make a real reduction to the amount of waste we throw out. Rethink Waste will show you how.
