Waste and Resource Recovery

The Bellingen Shire is the Number 1 recycler in NSW, out of 130 Council areas with 80.1% of kerbside waste diverted from landfill (NSW Environment Protection Authority NSW Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Data Report as reported by councils 2012-13).

Recent improvements to Council’s waste facilities have included remediation works and reopening the Bowerhouse reuse shop at the Raleigh Waste Management Centre.
