National Waste Policy
The National Waste Policy provides a national framework for waste and resource recovery in Australia. It outlines roles and responsibilities for collective action by businesses, governments, communities and individuals.
The National Waste Policy guides continuing collaboration between all Australian governments, businesses and industries. It does not remove the need for governments, businesses and industries to implement tailored solutions in response to local and regional circumstances.
The first National Waste Policy was published in 2009. An updated National Waste Policy was published in 2018.
