Register for a Trash Talk community forum

In 2018, we developed a 4-year Towards Zero Waste Management Plan 2018-23 with a 10-year Vision focused on achieving change within our community. This plan is ending and we want to develop a new 4-year plan to help us deliver the 10-year Vision and put in place recent legislative changes.

To achieve the 10-year Vision, we aim to:

  • provide a roadmap / workplan for the Waste Management Team for the next 4 years
  • inform the community of upcoming changes to waste services
  • act on recent legislative changes set out by the Victorian Government.

It is essential that the community play a key part in developing the revised plan and roadmap for the next four years in waste.
