Waste Reduction Management Strategy 2016-2021

Consultation has concluded

Shoalhaven City Council is seeking feedback on the draft Waste Reduction Management Strategy 2016–2021 from Wednesday 30 May 2018 to Tuesday 26 June 2018 (inclusive).

Council has the vision to become a leader in the recovery of recyclable materials from the waste stream, and minimise the quantities of waste disposed to landfill by re-using and processing waste types that would normally end up in landfill.

This strategy aims to provide clear direction for staff and the community on the waste service future priorities, strategies and actions to achieve the desired goals.


Scope and Purpose of the Strategy

The Strategy focuses on reducing domestic waste to landfill, increasing the recycling rate and improving
resource recovery across the region. Actions are directed at the parts of the waste stream that Council influences, made up domestic kerbside collections, transfer station self-haul, resource recovery Buy Back centres, landfill and Council’s own facilities.

Though the focus is primarily on the domestic sector, Council has developed targeted actions to encourage the commercial sector to improve and implement recycling and resource recovery initiatives.

The intent is for actions to be evaluated and /or measured each year and be subsequently adjusted, omitted or intensified. In this way, the Strategy becomes a “living” document that evolves year on year and works to achieve the strategic objectives within the five year timeframe, from 2017/18 to 2021/22.
