Keep Australia Beautiful NSW (KAB NSW) enjoys the support of a range of corporate partners and member councils.


The NSW Environment  Protection Authority (EPA)

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) protects our environment and the community by being a leader, partner and protector. We are the primary environmental regulator for NSW and our purpose is to improve environmental performance and waste management across the state.

We lead in protecting our air, waterways, land and the health of the community for the future. We work with communities, government and business to reduce our impact on the environment; and we hold people and organisations to account through licensing, monitoring, regulation and enforcement.

Our vision is for New South Wales to have a healthy environment, healthy community and healthy business. We believe healthy ecosystems are the foundation for healthy communities, a healthy economy and for enhancing liveability.

Return and Earn

The NSW container deposit scheme Return and Earn was established in December 2017 and has now seen over 9.7 billion containers returned for recycling through its network of 600+ return points across NSW. Launched as a litter reduction initiative, the scheme continues to deliver strong environmental, social and economic outcomes for the community. More than $30 million has been returned to charities and community groups from donations and fees for hosting return points and over 672,000 tonnes of material recycled.
