Rethink Waste Tasmania is a statewide initiative of the Cradle Coast Waste Management Group, the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group and the Southern Waste Strategy Authority. It aims to encourage the Tasmanian community to rethink what we do with our waste in order to continue to improve our environment and reduce the burden on landfills. Rethink Waste provides information on how to recycle at home, at work, at school and while out and about.
It's not hard. By rethinking what we do with our waste, we can make a real reduction to the amount of waste we throw out. Rethink Waste will show you how.
