NEW WASTE STRAT­EGY

Melville Times - - News -

The State Gov­ern­ment is look­ing at a new waste strat­egy, and it wants the pub­lic to have its say. The Waste Au­thor­ity's pa­per looks at op­por­tu­ni­ties to im­prove WA's waste and re­cy­cling per­for­mance, which is lag­ging be­hind other Aus­tralian ju­ris­dic­tions. One of three key ob­jec­tives is to in­crease the amount of waste re­cy­cled. In 2014-15, the av­er­age Western Aus­tralian gen­er­ated 2623 kilo­grams of waste - the high­est rate of waste gen­er­a­tion in Aus­tralia per capita and 19 per cent above the na­tional av­er­age. An aim set out in the con­sul­ta­tion pa­per is to have 75 per cent of all waste re­cy­cled or re­cov­ered by 2030. Visit www.wasteau­thor­ity.wa.gov.au to have your say.
