Tasmania’s three waste management groups have launched a new website to assist the Tasmanian community in thinking differently about our waste.
www.rethinkwaste.com.au is a collaborative state-wide initiative of the Cradle Coast Waste Management Group, the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group and the Southern Waste Strategy Authority that encourages Tasmanians to rethink what we do with our waste at home, at school, in the workplace and when out and about.
Rethinkwaste.com.au is encouraging all Tasmanians to continue improving our environment, save energy, and reduce the burden on landfill by rethinking what we do with our waste. Reducing the level of household waste is an easy exercise in rethinking old habits and watching what goes in our bins. Rethinkwaste.com.au can show you how to get started and keep you going with great tips and ideas throughout the year.
By rethinking what we do, we can make a real reduction to the amount of waste we throw out. It’s not hard and every little bit helps.
