Port Macquarie-Hastings Waste Management Strategy

Consultation has concluded

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is currently developing a five year Waste Management Strategy. Council aims to have the Strategy adopted by the end of 2011 so that contract negotiations with suppliers can be managed under the new Strategy.

Managing waste is one of the greatest environmental issues facing the community today. The challenge is to reduce wastes and in the process, to build business opportunities for recycling, composting and the recovery of wastes, which would otherwise be sent to landfill.

The Strategy will affect how we collect and dispose of waste, how we recycle, what the policies are and importantly how as a community we can reduce our long term reliance on landfilling.

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's ultimate goal is no waste to landfill by 2020. There are two fundamental ways to reduce waste to landfill; either behavioural change or by asking users to pay more. This discussion forum will help Council understand the community's opinions on these options.

We're ready to listen!
