Learning to be waste wise is a priority world wide as it is one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today.
Did you know that Australia is the second most wasteful nation in the world? We produce more than 18 million tonnes of waste per year. We are producing more waste than ever before due to the current trend of high consumption and highly specialised packaging, alongside the ever growing mountain of goods discarded by our throwaway society.
Nambucca Shire Council has been proactive in this area by entering into a partnership with Coffs Harbour City and Bellingen Shire Councils and Handybin Waste Services resulting in a regional waste collection service which commenced at the end of 2005 and is known as Coffs Coast Waste Service.
