Waste & Resource Recovery Strategy

Share this:

Council would like to thank the 1,200 residents who submitted their response to the Waste Management Survey.

About

About: 

The Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy will guide Council in providing environmentally, economically and socially sustainable waste management services across the municipality. Council will develop a ten-year Strategy in line with the Council Plan, which aims to further reduce the volume of waste going to landfill and explore innovative waste management and resource recovery mechanisms through regional partnerships.

The final Strategy will clearly set out reduction targets and actions that ultimately deliver a reduction in waste, while ensuring community needs and priorities are understood and used to inform our decision making process.

How you can be involved

How You Can Be Involved: 

A range of opportunities will be available for community members to provide feedback on the future delivery of waste management services in Golden Plains Shire.

OUR SURVEY HAS NOW CLOSED

Council would like to thank the 1,200 residents who submitted their response to the Waste Management Survey. Data from the survey and other sources will be gathered and analysed over the coming months to inform the development of a Draft Consultation Paper. The Draft Consultation Paper will include a summary of the data gathered, a vision, targets and service options for consideration by the community.

ATTEND A CONVERSATION POST

A Draft Consultation Paper will be developed and available for the community to provide their feedback. Feedback will be able to be submitted electronically, in hard copy or by attending a conversation post during April & May 2019 at one of the following locations:

  • Bannockburn
  • Rokewood
  • Meredith
  • Smythesdale.

Further details on these conversation posts will be available and shared with the community closer to the time.

PROVIDE COMMENT ON DRAFT STRATEGY

Following community feedback from the Draft Consultation Paper, a Draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy will be developed. The Draft Strategy will be on exhibition for community comment during July 2019.
