Liverpool City Council, located in the South West Sydney region, consists of 42 suburbs and is one of the fastest growing multicultural regions within the Sydney Metropolitan Area. Liverpool’s community come from over 150 different birthplaces and speak more than 140 different languages.
By developing and implementing innovative waste management projects, facilitating community workshops and delivering various education programs together with multilingual educational resources, Council ensures that recycling is feasible and easy for all community sectors including schools and community groups.
Liverpool City Council’s Community Recycling Centre was opened in 2014 and was one of the first centres to be established under the NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative. A wide range of problem-waste materials are collected at this centre including paint, oil, batteries, cardboard, polystyrene and x-ray films. To encourage the better management of food waste and diversion of food waste from landfill, Council also provides eligible residents interested in trying out composting and worm-farming a $50 rebate.

The Governor of New South Wales proclaimed Clarence Valley Council (CVC) on the 25 February 2004. This proclamation co-joined the former general purpose Council’s of Copmanhurst, Grafton, Maclean and Pristine Waters and activities of North Coast Water and Clarence River County Council.
The Clarence Valley is a place of outstanding natural beauty and diversity, from lush rainforests to unspoilt beaches and fertile river plains. The Clarence River, more than 380kms in length is the Valley’s living link connecting the rural localities and rugged mountain ranges in the west to the City of Grafton, onward to the hinterland villages, historic river towns of Ulmarra and Maclean and the coastal centres of Yamba and Iluka.
In 2013, with assistance from the NSW EPA, Clarence Valley Council introduced a three bin collection system, increasing the size of its yellow (co-mingled recyclables) bins and introducing a new, green lid FOGO bin. Organics are processed in council’s own Organics Recycling Facility and compost products are used in municipal gardens and available for purchase by residents.
The new system, accompanied by the Rubbish… Handle With Care campaign devised by the dirtgirlworld team has resulted in a dramatic increase in the recovery and recycling of waste, from a monthly average of 41% to 70% by volume.
Northern Rivers Waste was established in 2000 as a business unit of Lismore City Council to undertake its waste operations. We manage three waste facilities within the Local Government Area including the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre, the Nimbin Transfer Station and the Brewster Street Drop-off Centre. In addition to these facilities, we also manage all domestic collections and have a significant commercial collection business.
The Lismore Recycling and Recovery Centre is a regionally significant facility that includes a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), a Resource Recovery Facility (RRF), a composting facility, the Lismore Revolve Shop, a construction and demolition recovery area, Environmental Education Centre, Community Recycling Centre and the Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens. The Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre accepts waste materials from other neighbouring Councils and is becoming a regional hub of recycling and organics processing.
Lismore City Council is the first council in Australia to achieve organic certification for compost made from kerbside food and garden waste. We achieved the certification through Australian Organic by putting in place new screening processes to remove plastics and other inorganic materials from the kerbside waste as well as stringent product testing and cleaning/hygiene controls. This means organic producers from right across the Northern Rivers can purchase compost from us to utilise on their crops while maintaining their organic certification status.
