What Can We Do?

Save your wallet and your bin by wasting-less.

On average here in the Hunter Region, each person produces 548kg of waste per year, with a population of over 600,000 and growing, that is a lot of waste!

We can reduce this figure and our impact on the environment, but shopping smarter and making better choices, simple small acts can make a big change and reduce the amount of stuff we waste each year. This includes choosing reusable instead of disposable (such as drink bottles, coffee cups, batteries and bags), planning your meals, loving your left overs, buying second hand and borrowing instead of buying.

Get involved, and join us on social media share your ideas, commit to undertake just a few small acts to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill.

Small Acts Big Change is a waste education program brought to you by the nine Councils here in the Hunter Region who are working together to help reduce the amount that is sent to landfill each year.
