The Boomerang Alliance calls on Senate to support a National Circular Economy

In its submission to the Senate Inquiry on Commonwealth waste and recycling policies, the Boomerang Alliance has called for Commonwealth action to fix national waste laws.

The only way to reduce and eliminate waste is to abandon the linear economy model of make-use-throwaway and switch to a circular economy approach. The best way to achieve this is for producers of products to be responsible for their products through their entire lifecycle, not just when they manufacture them.


The Boomerang Alliance has called for:

  •  A national circular economy policy framework and its regulated adoption by all States and Territories.
  • All existing and future product stewardship schemes are to be mandatory schemes.
  • Commonwealth policies are to be aligned with State and Territory bans on particular products and landfill disposal, and the promotion of reuse of resources.
