Zero waste

Waste is increasing, despite the best recycling efforts. In a disposable society many products become obsolete not long after purchase, placing pressure on the planet's finite resources.

A community that is working towards zero waste is one that avoids the generation of waste and where any discarded materials are designed as a resource for other processes, no materials are discharged to land, air or water.

Council is running and supporting many local projects that aim at achieving less waste by reusing, repairing and avoiding in the first place.
