Have Your Say on the Draft Waste Management Plan

The purpose of the draft 2020-2025 Isaac Waste Management Strategy sets a clear path for the management of solid waste in the Isaac region towards 2029.

Your views are important to us and can help guide future Council decisions.

As a community, the Isaac region’s concept of waste is changing.

We need to treat waste as a valuable resource and work to keep it out of landfills.

Our region needs a waste plan that addresses variability in our population and local economy and delivers essential waste management services which support industry and the local community.

Meanwhile several State Government initiatives, including a State government waste levy and new state waste strategy and targets for resource recovery, have recently been introduced.

Isaac’s Waste Management Services will have to develop with these initiatives in mind.

This needs to be done in a manner that is financially sustainable, while striving to meet growing community and social expectations for better resource recovery and waste avoidance.
