Assessment of Waste Disposal and Material Recovery Infrastructure for Perth
Recent temporary closures to some of the key waste management infrastructure in the Perth Metropolitan Region have highlighted the limitations on certain facilities and raised questions about the short and long term adequacy of waste management infrastructure in this region.
The Waste Authority recognises these concerns amongst stakeholders and the desire for more effective waste infrastructure and contingency planning. The Waste Authority also recognises that shortfalls in the provision of waste management infrastructure across the Region may jeopardise optimal sustainable waste management practices. Increasing the provision of such infrastructure would assist in making the State vision of ‘Towards Zero Waste’ a more achievable target.
