National Waste Policy Implementation Plan and Reports
In July 2010 the National Waste Policy Implementation Plan was released, setting out governance arrangements and identifying priority initiatives and key milestones for the first five years of the 10-year policy.
Under the Implementation Plan, periodic reporting on progress is to be provided to Australia's environment ministers and ultimately made public. An initial status report against the Implementation Plan was prepared in November 2010.
The Implementation Report 2011 provides updates focusing on progress from late 2010 through to the end of 2011, in some cases recapping on progress reported in the earlier status report. It is intended to be the first of a series that is both a source of information and a tool for assessing the extent to which the aims of the National Waste Policy have been achieved.
