Your say on waste

With the population of Whitehorse projected to grow to 195,000 by 2027, an increase of 13 per cent, the amount of waste we generate is also set to increase to almost 150,000 tonnes a year. That’s about 1.3 tonnes for every resident.

The current Whitehorse Waste Management Plan (2011) will expire this year and so we have kicked off the process of developing a new strategy to reduce waste and manage costs.

We want your input as we declare war on waste. If you have an idea about how we can better deal with litter and dumped rubbish, or best manage food and garden waste, we want to hear from you.
