Preferred resource recovery practices by local councils

This paper is intended for local councils in the Sydney Metropolitan Area, cities and regional centres. It gives councils preliminary guidance on preferred minimum service levels for kerbside resource recovery and residual waste collection from single dwellings.

The paper also:

  • puts forward consistent standards for councils to facilitate education and improved understanding and use of recycling systems by residents
  • sets out preferred service characteristics for consideration by councils at the time of reviewing existing services, or entering into new collection or reprocessing contracts.

DEC invites feedback on these Preferred Resource Recovery Practices until Friday 29 July 2005.
