Waste and resource recovery strategy 2030

What would a waste free City of Whittlesea look like?

We are developing a Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 that will help us identify actions and targets to reduce the amount of waste we generate and increase the recovery of resources that are currently being sent to landfill.  

We have identified three themes:

  • Avoid
  • Recover
  • Protect

To help us develop a strategy that will address recycling and waste generation in our city, we want to hear your thoughts and ideas. Please have a read of the below background paper and brief discussion papers on each of the themes, and complete the online survey by Monday 30 November 2020.

By completing the survey, entrants go into the draw to win one of three $150 grocery vouchers to an online bulk food store.
