Why use these indicators and what do they mean for the overall Health and Wellbeing of the SHOROC Region?
SHOROC is utilising this suite of four (4) resource recovery indicators to monitor what the state of play is in respect to the domestic waste footprint of the region, when measuring it’s overall health and wellbeing over time.
