Have your say on the Circular Economy Policy
The NSW Government is developing a Circular Economy Policy to deliver positive economic, social and environmental outcomes for the NSW community.
Circular economy is about changing the way we produce, assemble, sell and use products to minimise waste, and to reduce our environmental impact. Circular economy can also be great for business; by maximising the use of our valuable resources, and by contributing to innovation, growth and job creation.
A circular economy is all about valuing our resources, by getting as much use out of products and materials as possible, and reducing the amount of waste we generate. For example, using recycled materials in manufacturing, repairing household goods before buying new ones, or repurposing items that are no longer used.
The NSW Government has released a draft Circular Economy Policy which outlines the principles and ideas that can help to shape our approach to resource use and waste management in NSW. We have also drafted a Circular Economy Discussion Paper, which explains these circular economy principles and how they play out around the world.
