Have Your Say on Geelong's War on Waste

This engagement is complete

Date: Monday, 18 February 2019 to Friday, 15 March 2019


Across the nation we are facing serious challenges in waste and recycling.  We need to address these head on.

To help fight Geelong's War on Waste, the City of Greater Geelong is developing the Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy this year. The strategy will set our long-term waste management directions and strategic actions to reduce waste and increase resource recovery. 

Before we begin designing the strategy, we would like to hear your thoughts on two discussion topics: Geelong's War on Waste and Reducing Our Food Waste.

Discussion papers and a draft background report have been provided to compliment the online survey. We recommend you read these documents before completing the survey. Your feedback will help shape the draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy.

Key findings

There were four key themes that came out of the community and stakeholder engagement process:

1. support for food organics collection service

2. avoid creating waste

3. recover more resources

4. educate the community.

The key findings and engagement results have informed our vision, goals and strategic actions in the draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2020-30.
