Hunter Joint Organisation, Hunter Circular Jan 2020
Current patterns of resource recovery in NSW and the Hunter Central Coast (HCC) have proven difficult to improve. This impacts businesses, households, the environment, human health, State and Local Government and the NSW economy. The Hunter Region and Central Coast Councils are interested in pursuing a circular economy approach to waste given the significant shock to the market called China National Sword. They formed the Circular Economy Working Group (CEWG) to deal with the issues at hand and develop local projects to further the opportunities provided by the circular economy. Equally, the NSW State Government has developed policy and principles for the furthering the circular economy in NSW. The HCC would like to be a leader in the development of the circular economy and a State leader in its potential future.
