Why does the Town need a Strategic Waste Management Plan?
Waste management is one of the most significant municipal services provided by the Town of Victoria Park. Including the recovery of resources, waste management is an important element of environmentally sustainable practices managed by the Town.
In 2008 the Town developed a Strategic Waste Minimisation Plan 2018-2013. This was in response to the challenge of the State Government’s commitment to minimise the creation of waste; recover, retreat and reuse waste efficiently; and dispose of waste responsibly.
Whilst significant changes have been implemented by the Town and the Mindarie Regional Council through this Plan, the Town needs a new Strategic Waste Management Plan for the next five years. This will ensure that the Town’s current and future efforts are optimised to achieve the best outcomes for the community considering the changes that have taken place in the industry during the recent years.
