The ACT generates approximately one million tonnes of waste each year. The government plans to lift the resource recovery of waste from 70% to 90% by 2025 and is seeking our views and ideas to make this happen.
It has developed a Roadmap to Improved Resource Recovery which identifies recommendations and initiatives to help drive change in the ACT community, businesses and waste industry.
The roadmap recommends that we
- Promote better waste management behaviour
- Divert organics from landfill
- Support and develop industry to process waste
- Consider waste-to-energy options
This is a great opportunity for us all to participate on an issue which affects everyone in the ACT, particularly the waste-to-energy issue, in the context of the current proposal to develop a waste processing facility in Fyshwick
Review the Roadmap and share your ideas on the recommendations and initiatives by 18 June 2018.
