Rethink Waste

Rethink Waste Tasmania encourages communities to rethink where their waste is going, and how we can best improve our efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle goods - ultimately to avoid landfill. Rethink Waste is a statewide initiative working to significantly reduce the amount of waste ending up as landfill, and creating a sustainable way to reduce the impact of waste on the environment.
