The Tasmanian Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2023-2026 was released on 15 November 2023 by the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Roger Jaensch MP, and the Chair of the Waste and Resource Recovery Board, Pam Allan.
The Strategy was prepared by the Board as required under the Waste and Resource Recovery Act 2022. It sets out a framework to reduce the generation of waste, boost recycling and resource recovery, and to position Tasmania to move towards a circular economy.
The Strategy will help us develop a better understanding of product use, reuse, repair, and resource flows in Tasmania, support the development and adoption of new business models, and help to build the capacity of Tasmania - and Tasmanians - to work and innovate in this exciting space.
The Strategy provides a commitment to a number of actions, like infrastructure investment, resource recovery and circular economy grants and other programs, levy rebates, education and awareness, and skills development. The Board and the Department of Natural Resources and Environment will also develop partnerships with other government agencies, local government, and key stakeholders to roll out a range of related programs.
