National Waste Report 2010
The National Waste Report 2010 was launched on 7 May 2010.
The report presents key information on waste management and resource recovery and draws on a range of published sources, commissioned research and information from states and territories. It is the first step towards establishing baseline data and developing a comprehensive account of waste issues which can be used by industry, government and the community to make informed and timely decisions.
As well as presenting national, state and territory waste data, the report discusses: the costs and impacts of landfill; recycling; hazardous waste; organic waste and litter; and describes how we managed waste in the past, our current arrangements and emerging issues and trends. The report also examines the quality of our data on waste and recycling.
The report can be downloaded as individual sections through the individual PDF documents below. For those people that wish to download the complete report, a single PDF file of the complete report is located at the bottom of this page.
A high resolution version of the report is available on CD from the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts. To request a copy, please complete the department's online publication order form located at www.environment.gov.au/about/publications/order-form.html
