Waste Strategy

We are commencing work on a new Waste Strategy. The Strategy is being developed to consider how Council delivers its waste services, consider access to services across the LGA, to develop appropriate pricing structures and to look at improving waste management. 

As part of this project we are establishing a Waste Strategy Working Group. The working group will assist in the development of a new Waste Management Strategy. Council is seeking two residential users from urban areas, two residential users from rural areas and two business and industry users, along with councillors and staff.

If you are interested in being a member of the working group residential users can submit an expression of interest online below. You should address the simple criteria in your submission. This includes a basic understanding of social, environmental and economic components of waste management, and good communication and liaison skills. Participants should also live in QPRC and be willing to allocate time to prepare for and attend meetings.

There will be four meetings of the working group which are expected to occur within the next 8 months. The meetings will generally be up to four hours in duration and may be conducted during or outside business hours. 

The first meeting will review a background paper and provide assistance in developing the approach to the first round of community consultation. The second meeting will review the consultation outcomes, review options arising from consultation and select options for inclusion in the draft strategy. The third meeting will review the draft strategy and financial model prior to it being released for community consultation and the final meeting will review the consultation outcomes and finalise the strategy and financial model for presentation to Council.
