Review of the Waste Strategy

We want your help to shape the future of waste and recycling in Western Australia.

The Government is seeking to make Western Australia into a sustainable low-waste society in which human health and the environment are valued and protected.

On behalf of the Government, the Waste Authority is reviewing the waste strategy which sets the long-term strategic direction and identifies priorities for waste in the State.

As part of its review, the Waste Authority has prepared a consultation paper which proposes amendments to the waste strategy that:

  • rename the existing objectives as foundations
  • introduce new objectives
  • refine the focus and establish priority areas
  • introduce the circular economy
  • establish the principles which we consider should underpin better practice approaches to waste management.

The Waste Authority is seeking stakeholder and community feedback on the proposed amendments. You can respond through the online survey or, if you wish to provide evidence and reasons to support your views, you can make a written submission.

Submissions close on 1 March 2018.
