In March, we declared a war on waste, and invited you along on the journey. We embarked on a series of community engagement activities, both online and in person, to better understand your concerns around how we deal with waste in Whitehorse.
We had more than 250 face to face conversations with our community at the Global Fiesta and various locations around Whitehorse such as the Whitehorse Recycling and Waste Centre, Forest Hill Chase Shopping Centre and Box Hill Central.
We had hundreds more responses through our survey and online forums.
All of your contributions have helped paint a clearer picture of where we need to focus our efforts. Over the next few months, Council will use your input to help prepare a draft waste management strategy which will govern how we manage waste over the next seven to ten years.
We’ll be back out in the community later this year to get your feedback on the strategy – keep an eye out!
Thank you so much for sharing your views and helping shape the new waste management strategy.
