Call for submissions on WA waste strategy review

The WA Waste Authority is progressing the development of a new waste strategy, with a consultation paper open for public comment until March 1, 2018.

The McGowan Government has introduced a number of waste reform and recycling initiatives, including banning lightweight plastic bags from next year and introducing a container deposit scheme.

In 2014-15, each Western Australian generated an average of 2,623 kilograms of waste - the highest rate of waste generation in Australia per capita and 19 per cent above the national average.

The consultation paper and other information is available here.
