Our Waste Strategy

Council is committed to a target of diverting 50% of all municipal solid waste from landfill by 2022. This is a shared target by Councils who are committed to the Cradle Coast Management Group's strategic plan.

Municipal solid waste includes general waste, recoverable and recyclable materials, green waste and timber, concrete rubble and soils. 

The CCWMG Strategic Plan 2017-2022 addresses many of the common waste management challenges experienced by Council. The CCWMG Annual Plan and Budget provides a common framework to work collectively to address these challenges. 

This strategy will guide Council in achieving the regional and local targets by building upon the current waste diversion activities and implementing a range of new actions. 

For details on how Council aims to achieve this target, please refer to the Waste Management Strategy below.
