Northern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (NSROC)

The Northern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (NSROC) was formed to assist seven local councils to collaborate on key issues and activities to generate benefits – social, environmental and economic – for their individual councils and for the region as a whole. The region covers an area of over 700 square kilometres lying between the Hawkesbury River and Sydney Harbour and is home to some 600,000 people.

NSROC is charged with four main functions:

  • Regional Advocacy – to promote a united voice on shared concerns in our region
  • Regional Project Management – to coordinate councils on regional or cross-council projects
  • Regional Research – to assess and evaluate regional needs and trends
  • Regional Information Provision – to provide councils and their communities with supporting resources.

NSROC member Councils are:

  • Hornsby Shire Council
  • Hunter’s Hill Council
  • Ku-ring-gai Council
  • Lane Cove Council
  • North Sydney Council
  • City of Ryde Council
  • Willoughby City Council

Regional Waste Management

Ultimately, NSROC is a resource to its member Councils enabling collaboration and development of regional solutions. With the support of the NSW EPA, using funds generated by the waste levy, the organisation appointed a regional coordinator to work with the member councils in developing and implementing a Regional Waste Strategy.

The Vision of that Strategy is to create:

A community actively engaged in waste reduction, recycling and resource recovery, to protect the environment and enhance community well-being.
