WALGETT SHIRE COUNCIL WASTE STRATEGY

Draft Walgett Shire Council Waste Management Strategy

The DRAFT Walgett Shire Council Waste Management Strategy was adopted for public exhibition at the 25 September 2018 Council Meeting. Council now invites comments in relation to the strategy.

The need for strategic approach to waste management was identified in Walgett Shire’s Community Strategic Plan: To operate an urban waste management system that meets the community needs and environmental standards. Walgett Shire Council faces a number of waste related challenges. Some are variable, such as increasing landfill compliance standards set by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority. Others are inherent, like the long distances between population centres which limits centralisation of infrastructure; and small tonnages of recyclable material which do not benefit from economies of scale.

The Strategy provides the ongoing management framework for delivery of the major waste management activities that Council provides to the community. Public participation during the development of this strategy included holding public meetings in Walgett and Lightning Ridge, conducting a community survey, and now placing this document on public exhibition.

Council encourages residents to consider the Draft Waste Management Strategy and make written submissions regarding any matters that they would like to raise with Council.  All submissions received prior to the close of business on Friday 9 November 2018 will be considered by Council.  Submissions can be mailed, e-mailed, or faxed to Council.  Further information can be made by contacting Jessica Mc Donald, Director Environmental Services on (02) 6821 6120.
