What is the Eastern-Midlands Regional Waste Plan?

The generation and management of waste is an everyday challenge which the people, businesses, industry and institutions of the Eastern-Midlands Region must recognise and address.  In our daily lives we produce non-hazardous, hazardous and sometimes toxic wastes.

These wastes have the potential to impact negatively on our communities, our health, our environment and future generations if not managed appropriately. Effective management systems are needed to ensure that we continue to live in healthy communities and protection is afforded to our environment. In the region we have a collective responsibility to improve our behaviours in response to this ongoing problem.  This is necessary if we are to rethink the waste challenge and ignite the opportunities which waste as a resource offers.
