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.
