Waste Plan

The Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 (Waste Strategy) includes a headline strategy to "implement local government waste plans, which align local government waste planning processes with the Waste Strategy".

The Town has developed a Waste Plan to govern the management of the Town's waste from 2018 - 2023, with the aim of reducing waste generation per capita by 10% by 2030 and to increase material recovery to 70% by 2030.

Compassionate Waste Services

A person may apply for increased bin capacity on compassionate grounds such as a medical condition which increases the quantity of waste produced or which makes correct sorting difficult.

A large family is not considered a reason for a compassionate service.

Applications for compassionate services are required to be supported by a medical professional or reasonable evidence of medical condition.
