Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation: Benchmarking the value of resources in the household bulky waste stream
Household bulky waste services are delivered by the majority of NSW councils. Bulky waste collections are complex in terms of material composition, are relatively small in volume compared to other waste services and economic drivers mean that these items are more difficult to divert from landfill.  The Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation wanted to broaden the understanding of the movement and collection of these items to identify opportunities to divert resources from landfill.
