Waste Managment Strategy 2017-2030

This consultation has concluded. Thank you for your contribution. 

Have your say!

Randwick City Council has developed a draft waste management strategy to guide and direct Council’s actions to manage rubbish and recycling in Randwick City to 2030.

We know how important recycling is to the community and we want to know what you think about the strategy.

We’ve set some high targets such as:

  • diverting 75% of our waste from landfill
  • reducing our overall waste generation per person
  • reducing illegal dumping and problem waste such as chemicals

The strategy also proposes to use some advanced technology in the future called Energy from Waste. This technology takes residual waste and through combustion produces heat and electricity. This technology is yet to exist in Sydney, but making use of it when it becomes available could see Council divert up to 94% of our waste from landfill.

The Draft Waste Management Strategy is on public exhibition from 23 February 2018 to 9am 6 April 2018.

You can download the Draft Waste Management Strategy or view hard copies at one of Council’s libraries or our Customer Service Centre at 30 Frances St, Randwick.

    More than 91% of respondents strongly or very strongly support Council’s investigation of Energy from Waste technologies to achieve a target of 94% landfill diversion.

    As a direct result of your feedback, we’ll be prioritising the rollout of food waste collection services in units and apartments as a priority in the next 1-5 years (previously marked for introduction in 5-10 years).

    At the Ordinary Council on 22 June 2018 Council resolved to adopt the Waste Management Strategy, which will now determine how we prioritise and plan our waste management into the future.
