North Queensland Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2020-2030

The North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (NQROC) is a collaborative organisation that promotes cooperation and resource sharing between Council's and effectively advocates for regional priorities. This is achieved through on going collaboration and advocacy and by working closely with regional partners and stakeholders.  

NQROC represents five member Councils, these being Burdekin Shire Council, Charters Towers Regional Council, Hinchinbrook Shire Council, Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council and Townsville City Council. It extends over 80,036 square kilometres with a population of approximately 236,000 (7.9% Indigenous). Our five member councils make up what is referred to as the North Queensland region. 

Waste management and resource recovery are a significant priority for North Queensland as the impacts of waste create a risk to our communities, environment, and economy. Regional collaboration is critical to deliver high level assessment of waste management in the North Queensland region. The NQROC Regional Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2020-2030 will assist in determining the waste priorities for North Queensland as well as identify current and future infrastructure needs. It will enable the North Queensland region to reduce the environmental impact of waste and use resources more efficiently and effectively.
