Developing a bespoke modelling, Geographic Information System analytics and an online study portal to deliver a smarter waste management approach.

Waste disposal is an urgent environmental issue and for seven fast growing regional NSW towns running individual trucks and landfills the long-term options looked daunting.

Rigorous assessment of available disposal options and a clear action plan to improve community waste management by Arcadis prompted all seven councils to commit to exploring regional opportunities.

Bespoke modelling, Geographic Information System analytics and an online study portal played a key role in telling a smarter waste management approach, but so did the projected $11 million in yearly savings from regional collaboration.
