Draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030

Our draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 is an eight-year plan to help shape our transition to a circular approach to waste management.

You've already told us through the 2050 Community Vision Survey (2021) and Waste Education Survey (2019) that reducing our environmental impact is important and this is one of the key directions in our Council Plan 2021-2025.

Over the next eight years, we’ll need to change our household kerbside collection services to align with the Victorian Government’s kerbside reforms, support the local implementation of a container deposit scheme and invest in community-based waste and recycling education while continuing to effectively manage waste and resource recovery services and infrastructure for a growing population.

The State Government’s Recycling Victoria policy sets out a new model for managing waste and recycling across the state and aims to reduce waste, increase recycling and create more value from our resources, ultimately establishing a circular recycling system that Victorians can rely on.

Purpose

The purpose of this draft strategy is to set a vision for the future of waste and resource recovery services for the Mitchell Shire community over the next eight years.

The draft strategy provides a roadmap of goals, actions and targets that will help Council and the community to live more sustainably by reducing the amount of waste generated and increasing the amount of material that is both reused and recycled.

Our draft strategy aims to:

  1. Avoid creating waste through education and decision making
  2. Recover the maximum value from all waste material to support a local circular economy
  3. Protect our environment and community from the impacts of waste
