Waste is both a resource and an investment opportunity and regional NSW is set for investors looking to recover and recycle waste.
The NSW Government has committed to supporting appropriate investment in the waste recovery sector.
Regional NSW offers a wealth of benefits to businesses aiming to invest in this industry sector. It is home to a highly-skilled labour force, has streamlined access to large markets, provides lower business costs, and is supported by significant Government investment in infrastructure.
Investment is not limited to large-scale waste facilities. From local to state-wide projects, there are opportunities for a range of waste and resource recovery technologies to be explored and supported in regional NSW.
To support this investment, the NSW Government has the largest waste and recycling funding program in Australia, investing $802 million over nine years, to 2021. This program provides funding for investment in infrastructure, services and education in the waste and recycling sector.
