Better Practice Workshop

Waste generation is becoming a global issue of significant proportion.

Here in Western Australia it continues to grow, largely as a result of increasing population and economic growth. As a key responsibility of local governments to manage, it has become a considerable and rising cost, is subject to high community expectations, and can have a major impact on the environment.

This forum, The future of waste management—the things you need to know…., was designed to explore current innovative approaches being undertaken by local governments to strategically plan for waste management which better meets community expectations and the State Government’s waste targets and aspirations of moving the State to a low waste society.  The forum provided an opportunity to hear from a range of experienced practitioners and experts.
