Moving to a circular economy will provide long-term economic, social, and environmental benefits for NSW. This transition will generate jobs, increase the robustness of the economy, increase the accessibility of goods, maximise the value of resources, and reduce waste.
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.
