Welcome to the Boomerang Alliance
The Boomerang Alliance is committed to work for zero waste in Australia based on a mechanism of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for ensuring the elimination over time of all products and packaging from the waste stream. The "goal of zero" demands that Australia change course on waste as a matter of urgency, or risk falling further and further behind world's best practice.
The Boomerang Alliance believes a more equitable cost sharing of waste disposal and recycling is essential in moving to a zero waste society. EPR redirects the cost burden of managing the waste stream from local government and ratepayers to those industries and consumers that are responsible for the production of waste and litter in the first place, penalising poor performers and rewarding those companies that embrace cleaner production and waste avoidance.
As a nation, we've reached a waste watershed. Now we need to take decisive action!
