Northern Inland Regional Waste (NIRW) is a voluntary organisation of Councils in the New England and North West regions of NSW. NIRW works collaboratively for better regional outcomes in waste management and resource recovery. NIRW leads a number of waste programs and addresses waste management issues using a strategic regional approach.
The NIRW region incorporates the New England and North West NSW. The region consists of regional cities, townships and farming communities. Some of the region’s larger areas include agriculture, mining and education. The region covers an area of 99,754 kms2 and is home to 176,226 people.
This program is supported by the NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
