This paper looks at the waste data and waste management of the various states of Australia. It appears that the most successful State in this area is South Australia so the obvious question is why? Is it solely due to the work of ZeroWaste SA? Or is the awareness of waste issues heightened in South Australia by their container deposit legislation and, more recently, the ban on lightweight plastic bags?
