About the Conference
When we first hear the term ‘zero waste’ the common response is to think that it sounds unrealistic. Zero waste, however, is really about minimising waste generated to be disposed off at final disposal sites and maximising waste materials utilisation. It is similar to ideals of ‘zero accidents’ on the road or ‘zero defects” in manufacturing.
Zero waste is a ‘whole systems’ approach that requires a rethink of how materials flow through our society be utilised again as what is waste to one part of the system inevitably becomes product of another part of the system. Zero waste envisages a society where material is constantly cycled through different systems, adding value at each point in the cycle.
Achieving this strategic objectives and targets requires collaborations, partnership and cooperation from all relevant stakeholders–State Government, Local government, Environment and community groups , Industry, Individuals, etc.
