The City of Devonport's 2018-2023 Draft Waste Strategy provides a framework to guide efficient and cost-effective decisions for the delivery of Council's managed waste services.
The purpose of this strategy is to reduce the financial and environmental impacts of waste generation whilst placing Devonport City Council in the best place possible to optimise opportunities such as grants and contract alignment to improve waste outcomes.
This strategy outlines Council's activities over the next five year period focusing on reaching three key outcomes:
- Reducing the average amount of waste generated
- Reducing the amount of waste to landfill by increasing the recovery and recycling of resources across all waste streams
- Protecting our natural environment by reducing the total amount of litter and illegal dumping
Council is seeking community feedback on the draft strategy, in particular the actions suggested to meet the above outcomes.
