Towards Zero Waste for Launceston is an initiative of Gentle Footprints Permaculture Education, the City of Launceston and the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group.

They’ve produced a free, handy guide to help reduce waste.  It covers everything from composting and worm farms, to the Swap not Shop movement, how to reduce recycling contamination, and the principles of the waste hierarchy.
