NSW Litter Prevention Strategy
Two new ambitious litter reduction targets have been set in the new NSW Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy 2041 (PDF 2.1MB). These targets are:
- reduce all litter items by 60% by 2030
- reduce plastics litter items by 30% by 2025.
Under the NSW Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy 2041 an additional $38 million of funding for 2022–27 has been allocated to litter programs to achieve these targets. This will provide funding for councils and community groups to deliver local and regional litter prevention projects and build on NSW’s other litter prevention work, including the successful Don't be a Tosser! campaign.
To guide these priorities the NSW Government has developed the NSW Litter Prevention Strategy 2023–30 (PDF 2.7MB).
