Maximising our resource recovery on a regional scale
Managing the community’s waste is a core responsibility of local government.
Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah (the SHOROC councils) are at the forefront and are in a unique position to sustainably manage the waste of our region for many years to come. We are working towards ambitious targets to divert residential waste from going to landfill, as outlined in the NSW Government’s Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy.
SHOROC is developing a Regional Waste Strategy aligned to our member councils’ priorities and the NSW Government’s Northern Beaches Regional Action Plan.
The three areas of waste management in the SHOROC region are:
- Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre
- Regional Waste Solution – establishment of a common collection system
- Banning e-waste from landfill
Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre
Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre is owned and operated by Kimbriki Environmental Enterprises Pty Ltd (KEE). KEE was incorporated on 1st July 2009 and has four shareholders – Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah, the SHOROC councils.
KEE is a leader in waste management education and practice, and is set to transform waste management as it introduces advanced waste treatment technologies to maximize recycling and re-use of the domestic wastes from the region. Find out about more about Kimbriki’s ‘Solution for Local Waste’ here.
SHOROC Regional Waste Solution
The four councils of Mosman, Manly, Warringah and Pittwater have agreed to change the way waste is collected across their council areas. The new system will be phased in and will increase our recycling, keep costs to ratepayers down and be easy to use.
Banning e-waste from landfill
In 2009, the SHOROC councils banned the kerbside collection and disposal of e-waste – or electronic waste – to landfill and SHOROC led a ban on e-waste campaign to raise awareness of e-waste collection and recycling programs from local councils and waste management centres.
More than 90 per cent of e-waste material is now being recycled. Find out more on the ban and what you can do with your e-waste as a resident of the councils in the SHOROC region.
