Event description
Litter Prevention Implementation Program (L-RIP) workshop for Metro Waste Groups

About this event

The Litter Prevention Unit at NSW EPA is inviting Sydney Metro Waste Groups managers, coordinators, and educators to the Litter Regional Implementation Program (L-RIP) workshop.

The EPA L-RIP program since 2015 has delivered five rounds of grants totaling almost $4 million in funding and contributing to achieving the Premier’s Priority 40% litter reduction target. Under the new NSW Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy EPA is committed to extend and improve this litter prevention regional program. To do so EPA needs your inputs and active participation.

Why you should attend

The aim of the workshop is to hear directly from you how to further support regional litter strategies and increase Councils, community groups, and industry collaboration in delivering effective litter prevention projects.

The highly interactive workshop will allow participants to discuss:

  • The role of Metro Waste Groups in supporting coalitions of Councils in litter prevention
  • The review and enhancement of regional litter strategy and implementation plans
  • The opportunity to sustain the substantial knowledge and growing skills on litter prevention

Gerard Atkinson, Senior Manager at ARTD Consultants will facilitate the workshop. Gerard has a solid understanding of the litter prevention strategy having recently led the eight-year EPA Litter Prevention Program evaluation.

A similar event is scheduled in Tamworth for the Regional Waste Groups on the 12 of August 2021.
