Community Waste Strategy 2018-2023

The Shire of Esperance has introduced a range of recycling initiatives over the years including commingled kerbside recycling however, like many other Local Governments within regional Australia, the Shire has a high reliance on landfill for the treatment of its waste.

The Shire recognises the opportunity to improve its waste management practices to achieve more sustainable outcomes, which has led to the development of this Community Waste Strategy. It outlines how the Esperance Community, alongside the Shire, can reduce waste, have alternatives to landfill and support initiatives that reduces our reliance on waste producing products.

The new Community Waste Strategy 2018-2023 was adopted at an Ordinary Council Meeting on 27 February 2018, the Agenda and Minutes from the meeting can be viewed here. A copy of the Community Waste Strategy can be downloaded here, or a b&w printed copy can be requested by emailing and collected from the Administration Building on Windich Street.
