The Boomerang Alliance was formed in 2004 with the aim of a zero waste society - see our initial 'Statement of Position' [256kb]. Our first target was packaging, in particular beverge containers. We have also successfully campaigned for a national electronic waste recycling program (involving all brands) and are watching moves towards waste from energy very closely.
Our initial membership has grown to 27 national and state environment groups:
