Whitehorse City Council

Your say on waste

Throughout 2018 we declared a war on waste and invited you along the journey as we worked together to identify what is important to you in the way that waste in managed in the City of Whitehorse.

Between March and May 2018, we undertook a comprehensive community engagement process to help inform development of the strategy. We then asked for community comment on the draft over a 4 week period from September to October 2018. We had hundreds of face to face conversations at drop-in events and listening posts, held a community workshop, ran online forums and had hundreds of responses to the online survey. Your contributions helped to paint a clear picture of where we need to focus our efforts and make improvements to the draft.

In December 2018 Council adopted the new strategy: Rubbish to Resource! Waste Management Strategy 2018-2028.
