What is LAWMAC?
The Local Authority Waste Management Advisory Committee (LAWMAC) is an organisation of nineteen North Queensland Local Government Councils dedicated to best practice waste management aiming to provide sustainable solutions through its regional forum and interactive participation across the LAWMAC region on current and future Waste Management Practices and Technologies.
LAWMAC is a 'not for profit' group comprising members from the North Queensland Local Government area from Cook Shire in the north to Mackay in the south and extending inland to Mount Isa, Burke and Cloncurry shires.
LAWMAC General Meetings are held quarterly with the Annual General Meeting scheduled asap after the end of each financial year plus a Waste Management Conference also held Bi- Annually.
Officers of the North Queensland Local Government Association, Local Government Association of Queensland, Department of Environment & Resource Management Qld, Queensland Health, Waste Industry Groups and Waste Management related representatives are encouraged to attend meetings and provide input and information, but are not entitled to vote.
Association membership is available to members of Industry, Commerce, State Agencies and other non-government organisations, but will also be without entitlement to vote at meetings.
