'Energy from Waste' Technology

'Energy from waste' technology: Legislative Council March 2018


In 2014-2015, New South Wales generated about 19 million tonnes of waste. Indeed, New South Wales is currently the second highest per capita producer of waste in the world. It is therefore essential that waste management services and infrastructure are strategically planned and delivered appropriately. However, successive NSW Governments have failed to effectively leverage waste levy funds to support the development of these much-needed services and facilities, leaving New South Wales dependent on landfill for waste disposal. The committee has made a number of recommendations to overcome this issue, including that the NSW Government hypothecate a greater percentage of waste levy funds to local councils and the waste industry to support the provision of additional waste services, initiatives and infrastructure. The committee has also recommended that the NSW Government identify a government body responsible for leading waste infrastructure planning in New South Wales.
