2016 Regional Litter Plan 2016-2021
The Hunter Regional Litter Plan provides the opportunity to develop a ‘sister document’ to the Regional WARR Strategy and enable a a=targeted focus on litter avoidance and management activities. The Regional Litter Plan provides detail and costings to deliver regionally specific projects aimed at reducing litter in the region.
The Hunter Regional Litter Plan (RLP) was developed in close collaboration with the Hunter Litter Working Group (HLWG) which consists of representatives from each of the nine member councils and in accordance with the rigorous requirements of the NSW EPA.
The associated Regional Litter Implementation Plan (L-RIP) provides detail and costing’s to deliver regionally specific projects aimed at reducing litter in the region. It is understood that the NSW EPA will use the L-RIP as a funding mechanism to distribute litter funds to regions and Councils. The Litter Plan and Associated L-RIP have identified a regional funding request of $634,000 to deliver the 5-year plan.
