Stay up to date on upcoming consultation

We are developing a draft Waste and Circular Economy Strategy and we are committed to consulting our community to help us do this.

Waste management is an essential service provided by Council, critical to the health of the community and protecting the local environment. The transition to a circular economy, where we keep materials in use for longer through reuse, repair, and recycling, also presents potential economic, social and environmental opportunities for our local community and businesses.

As the first step in our consultation, we conducted a random telephone survey to gain an initial understanding of community views on priorities for local waste management and the transition to a circular economy.

We then ran some more focused community workshops to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities.

We are using this feedback to help shape the draft strategy that will be on public exhibition later in the year.
