Draft RRC Waste Strategy 2020-2030 Survey

Consultation has concluded

The draft RRC Waste Strategy 2020-2030 provides the strategic framework and specific strategic actions that Council is proposing to undertake over the next 10 years in order to transition our community towards a circular economy, with the long term goal of achieving zero waste by 2050.

If we are to achieve this ambitious goal, it will require a whole of community effort. As such, we are keen to invite all interested stakeholders to get involved in this process, starting with providing us with your feedback and ideas on this important first step.

This survey can be found in the documents tab to the right hand side of the page.

Please read this Draft and make your comments by 17 November 2019.


More on the Draft Strategy:

The Rockhampton Regional Council Waste Strategy is Rockhampton Regional Council’s own response to meet waste consumption challenges and to align our efforts with the new policy positions being adopted across the waste management sector.

In this strategy you will find an evaluation of our existing capacity and current performance. It then outlines what a zero waste community would look like in 2050 in terms of the waste we forecast our community will generate, establishes the measures against which we will monitor our progress and details the strategic actions that Council will implement over the next 10 years in pursuit of achieving the goal of zero waste by 2050. This strategy also fulfils all of Council’s obligations under the Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011.

Council recognises that to achieve the ambitions of a circular economy and zero waste, a whole of community response will be required. This strategy is therefore only the first step in a much longer conversation and collaboration across our community, local business, government agencies, the waste industry, educators and many other stakeholders.
