NSW PEP - True cost of litter

Published 30th January 17 12:00 AM

The latest on best practice litter prevention

In comparison to waste prevention and management, litter is often managed through a limited ‘toolbox’ of metrics and policy. However, lessons from the behavioural sciences have been used internationally in litter management to great effect.

Join us to explore the social impact and wider ranging effect of litter in public spaces and gain insights from the NSW EPA on their refreshed anti-litter education campaign and opportunities for grant funding under the Waste Less Recycle More 2017-21 extension.


  • Darren Perrin (Eunomia) - Eunomia are a UK based firm specialising in quantifying the social and environmental effects of litter. Their work with a number of Europe’s largest environmental agencies and governments has yielded a wealth of knowledge around the way behaviour is altered in heavily littered areas and how local authorities can best manage its impacts.
  • Blake Lindley (Edge Environment) - Edge Environment has worked extensively through the public and property sectors developing collateral to increase participation and capture of waste and recyclables in public places. Communication is critical to the success of any program and the lessons learnt from trials Edge has been involved with are widely applicable to this space.
  • Sharon Owens (NSW EPA) - NSW EPA will be launching a renewed anti-litter media campaign in March, Sharon will introduce this, explain the importance of targeted litter strategy in local councils and also opportunities for community and grant funding for litter in Waste Less Recycle More 2017-21 Extension.
