Have Your Say: Community Consultation
At Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 14 December 2020, Council endorsed a draft Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy 2021-2026 for community consultation.
The draft Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy 2021-2026 was available for community feedback throughout December, January and February, with three information sessions held across the region.
Submissions for feedback closed at 4.30pm, Friday 19 February.
Council officers updated the draft, which was presented to Council for adoption on 22 June 2021.
At the 22 June 2021 Ordinary Meeting, Council adopted an updated Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy 2021-2026 and its key theme is waste reduction through enhanced resource recovery, and education.
During the consultation in the drafting of this Strategy community members overwhelmingly supported a focus on waste avoidance, reuse and resource recovery, community education and infrastructure.
This document echoes and reinforces the sentiments shared in feedback sessions that Council need to make reducing waste easier and more appealing for our community through the waste services it offers.
Council aims to manage waste efficiently, cost effectively and in an environmentally responsible manner in line with the ambitious targets set by the Queensland Government to become a zero-waste society, where waste is avoided, reused and recycled to the greatest possible extent.
The Scenic Rim's progression towards 'zero avoidable waste to landfill' is supported at all levels of planning and is included in the Corporate Plan Scenic Rim 2026.
