Help us rethink our approach to waste

Thursday 17 May 2018

We’re taking a fresh look at waste.

Earlier this year we asked for your help and you certainly came to the party, submitting hundreds of great ideas for a more creative and sustainable approach.

We carefully considered your feedback and created a draft Waste Minimisation Strategy to improve the way we purchase, consume and use resources.

We’re now inviting you to view the draft strategy and to provide further feedback.

Have your say by completing the form on our Your Say Yarra project page by Wednesday 13 June 2018.

The strategy is built around five key objectives, each with a four year action plan detailing the specific tasks required to achieve our targets.

Key objectives:

  • Valuing our resource.
  • Delivering high quality, accessible services and programs.
  • Encouraging community pride through clean and litter free public spaces.
  • Ensuring Yarra has access to the programs, infrastructure and technology to meet its targets
  • Collaborate, partner and advocate for better outcomes.

If you have a question for our Waste Minimisation team, email them at info@yarracity.vic.gov.au (subject line: Rethinking our waste) or call them on 9205 5555.
