Government Sponsor

The EPA is an independent statutory authority and the principle environmental regulator in NSW. It leads the state’s response to managing a diverse range of activities that can impact on the health of the NSW environment and its people, using a mix of tools including education, partnerships, licensing and approvals, audit, enforcement and economic mechanisms.

To tackle the issues of waste and recycling the EPA is delivering the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative. This is a 5-year $465.7 million waste and recycling agenda for NSW that will deliver economic, employment and environmental benefits for local communities and will transform waste and recycling in NSW.
