Hunter and Central Coast Circular (Hunter Circular for short)
Hunter and Central Coast Circular is a Hunter Joint Organisation (Hunter JO) and Central Coast Council project developed in collaboration with Hunter JO councils, NSW DPIE Sustainability Advantage, University of Newcastle and other partners to help accelerate the region toward a more ciruclar economy to drive improvement in economic and environmental outcomes. The Hunter Circular collaboration is facilitated by Hunter Central Coast Circular Economy Facilitators Group (HCCCE Group) and is comprised of multidisciplinary subject matter experts that serve to foster a circular economy in the Hunter and Central Coast regions. The HCCCE Group works to develop relationships and collaboration across the regions circular economy ecosystem and provides advice, guides strategic planning and operational projects and makes recommendations on the regions circular economy initiatives. Meetings are held bi-monthly.
Hunter Circular is hosted by the circular economy eco-system project and all projects are funded through the NSW State Government Better Waste and Recycling Fund.
