The Quirindi waste management project

 

Overview

The Quirindi waste management project aims to increase recycling and reduce waste in shire landfill facilities. The project involves a partnership between Liverpool Plains Shire Council and the Quirindi Aboriginal Corporation (QAC).

The recycling service has increased the volume of recycled materials collected by 88% since the project commenced. The project has also allowed QAC to purchase a local landscaping supply business from profits earned from on-selling recycled products. Community members can now drop off waste and then pick up landscaping materials. The partnership has resulted in benefits to the local Indigenous community, council, community residents, the local economy and to the environment.
