The NSW 20-Year Waste Strategy is a whole-of-government initiative to provide a long-term strategic direction for communities, industry and all levels of government to work together to build resilient services and markets for waste resources.

An issues paper Cleaning Up Our Act: The Future for Waste and Resource Recovery in NSW was released in March 2020 for public consultation, to help shape the development of the 20-Year Waste Strategy.

Drawing on the evidence and stakeholder engagement to date, the issues paper sets out the case for action and outlines a range of options that could support the shift towards a circular economy.
