Dorset Council is a member of the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group (NTWMG).

The NTWMG works to achieve improvements in waste reduction and resource recovery, improve regional cooperation and coordination of waste services, oversee waste management policy setting and service delivery, and coordinate community education.

The NTWMG is part of a statewide initiative called Rethink Waste which provides resources, funding and information to improve our collective efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle - you can find out more here!
