UPDATE - 10 July

We would like to thank our community members for the time and effort they put into their submissions to the draft Waste and Litter Management Strategy 2025.

There was a high level of engagement and support from the community during the public consultation which resulted in 87 submissions being received, all of which were considered by Council at its Ordinary Council Meeting on 9 July 2019. The Strategy was adopted at this meeting.

Letters have been sent out to those submitters wishing to be kept informed, advising them of the outcome.

The adopted Waste and Litter Management Strategy 2025 and the community consultation report can be viewed in the document library.


UPDATE - 4 July

The final Waste and Litter Management Strategy 2025 will be presented to Council for adoption at the ordinary Council Meeting from 7pm on Tuesday 9 July 2019. This will take place at the Civic Centre, 115 Civic Parade, Altona. All welcome.


Have your say on Council's Draft Waste and Litter Management Strategy!

The draft Waste and Litter Management Strategy centres on waste and litter that Council has direct control over or influence on. It outlines new directions for waste and litter management in Hobsons Bay.

The draft strategy concentrates on avoidance, reuse, recycling, and resource recovery of waste and litter in Hobsons Bay rather than disposal to landfills.

Our vision is to provide leadership and empower our community to deliver innovative and collaborative solutions to an array of waste and litter management issues. To achieve this vision, our strategy focuses on several goals.


Goals:

  • reduce and recover food waste
  • strengthen community behaviour change
  • enable resource recovery facilities and support local economies
  • a cleaner Hobsons Bay
  • a Council of excellence in waste and litter management
