Our Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy 2012-2020 will provide broad strategic directions for managing waste created within the City of Whittlesea.
The strategy looks at how waste management has changed and recommends the future direction to improve outcomes for waste management, resource recovery and recycling, without imposing unnecessary extra costs on the community.
It focuses on:
- improving the delivery of waste management services
- targeting valuable materials that can be recovered from landfill waste to be reused or recycled
- reducing litter through targeted services and educational programs
- managing landfills to the highest environmental and aftercare standards
