Reason for the engagement

Our waste; it’s not just a load of rubbish!

Rockhampton Regional Council has drafted a Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan (2016-2024). This Plan challenges current waste management performance and strives to achieve clear, set targets for waste reduction and diversion for our Region. 

Over the lifetime of this plan, Council will achieve an overall reduction in waste to landfill of 15%.

Through the implementation of this Plan, Council will meet the objectives outlined in the Queensland Waste Avoidance and Resource Productivity Strategy (2014 - 2024).
