Regional and remote communities in Australia face a number of challenges in managing waste and recovering and re-using resources. Challenges include access to markets for recyclables; distances and road conditions between towns and waste facilities and the recruitment and retention of staff.
Each community is unique and there is no single solution. To improve waste management, successful regional and remote communities have tailored solutions to meet their circumstances. From these solutions, come opportunities to share knowledge, experiences and learnings.
