Government Edit in CP

The government sector has an involvement with waste management from the local government level managing household rubbish collections, kerbside pickups and hazardous waste collections to managing joint facilities with other councils and recycling and recovering waste.

At the state level, WA is charged with setting policy and regulation to move us towards best practice in waste management.

The State Government is also part of the development of the National Waste Policy environment and the National Product Stewardship legislation.

The responsible Minister for waste policy in WA is the Hon Stephen Dawson, Minister for Environment.
