Submission on Waste Minimisation

On 21st October the Association President Rhona Carson made an oral submission on the Proposed Solid Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2020, following on from an online submission in September. 

The main concerns were to increase the commitment to reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, and to demonstrating this by changing the language from “Waste Management” to “Zero Waste”. We also wanted WCC to collect the waste and recycling from multi unit dwellings, as not doing this disadvantages these residents.

The other main issue was about increasing the expectations for having “Zero Waste” targets at events.
