What happens to MRFs when a CDS is implemented?

A Container Deposit System (CDS) is a great idea, but there also has to be changes to other parts of the waste collection equation – such as MRFs – when such a system comes into play.

FOGO in MUDs – how to make it work

As our cities become bigger we are living more in units and flats (MUDs or multi-unit dwellings) rather than houses (SUDs or single unit dwellings). MRA is regularly asked to explain whether FOGO (Food Organic and Garden Organic waste collected in a dedicated green lidded bin, from households) works in MUDs.

Wasted Space: Victorian CDS Schemozzle

Dear Minister, well, well, well. Talk about setting the cat among the pigeons, or should I say, single-use plastics among recyclables. There’s been a bit of an ado within the waste sector about container deposit schemes (CDS).

Victoria’s CDS – who’s right and who’s wrong?

When regulators come knocking

Waste is a highly regulated industry, given it has the potential for significant impacts to human health and the environment if not managed carefully. For this reason, many in the industry will, from time to time, receive an unwelcome visit, call, request, or notice from regulators.

Why we should have a national landfill levy

  Australians want to take care of the environment, both locally and globally. That means preserving remaining natural habitat and reversing climate change. There are few that now quibble with protecting koala habitat or expanding renewables. When it comes to waste, we have set a national resource recovery target of 80 per cent by 2030. … <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> To access this post, you must purchase <span class="wc-memberships-products-grant-access"><a href="https://www.insidewaste.com.au/index.php/product/individual-subscription/">Individual Subscription</a> or <a href="https://www.insidewaste.com.au/index.php/product/solo-sub/">30 Days Free Trial</a></span>, If you have an existing subscription, please login <a href="https://www.insidewaste.com.au/index.php/my-account/edit-account/">here</a>. </div> </div> 0 2699

When is waste ‘waste’?

How many times have you heard: “I wish we could stop thinking of waste as ‘waste’ and start thinking of it as a resource”. While I support the sentiment, I dislike the phrase and particularly the word ‘wish’ because it implies that if we only think differently about waste then things will change for the … <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> To access this post, you must purchase <span class="wc-memberships-products-grant-access"><a href="https://www.insidewaste.com.au/index.php/product/individual-subscription/">Individual Subscription</a> or <a href="https://www.insidewaste.com.au/index.php/product/solo-sub/">30 Days Free Trial</a></span>, If you have an existing subscription, please login <a href="https://www.insidewaste.com.au/index.php/my-account/edit-account/">here</a>. </div> </div> 0 2674
