We want your feedback on the draft
Waste Management Strategy 2018 – 2028
Earlier this year 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. We had over 250 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.
By combining your feedback with the findings of a waste management review and Council operational considerations we have prepared the draft Waste Management Strategy 2018 – 2028. Now, we are inviting you to view the draft strategy and provide your feedback by October 22. Your feedback will inform the final strategy for Council’s endorsement.

About the project
The current Whitehorse Waste Management Plan 2011 is due to expire at the end of the year. The Whitehorse Waste Management Strategy will replace and expand on the seven-year Waste Management Plan 2011. The draft strategy was prepared following a comprehensive community engagement process and is guided by Council’s Vision and Plan and the Whitehorse City Council Sustainability Strategy 2016 -2022.
The strategy identifies issues and challenges around waste and expands on the actions within the Waste Management Plan 2011. It outlines a number of actions which fall under the banner of five priority outcomes:
Minimising waste to landfill
Maximising resource efficiency
Leading the way
Continuous improvements to our services
Being agile in responding to modern challenges
