Zero Waste SA
Zero Waste SA is a South Australian government department which was established to promote waste management practices that as far as possible eliminate waste or its consignment to landfill, and advance the development of resource recovery and recycling. Zero Wastes' vision is to one day achieve zero discharge, zero material waste, and zero atmospheric damage.
Zero Waste helped design South Australia’s Strategic Plan, which sets goals for South Australia to improve and measure its progress over time in areas including prosperity, wellbeing, sustainability, creativity, community and opportunity. The Plan makes use of the Ecological Footprint as a tool for setting and monitoring the region’s sustainability targets. Among its objectives is the reduction of South Australia’s Ecological Footprint in order to curb the impact of human settlements and activities within 10 years as well as reducing landfill waste by 25% in this time period.
