Consultation has concluded


Council has developed a draft Waste Strategy, guided by a Community Reference Group, and based on results of a targeted survey that approximately 1000 residents responded to.

The draft Waste Strategy is Council's commitment to improving and enhancing the way we manage waste and describes the key activities proposed for the next five years.

The Strategy states that:

"Together, Council and the community will work to Reduce the amount of waste we generate, Reuse what we can and Recycle waste resources to reinvest back into the community, enhancing our municipality as 'the best place to live in the Top End"

Council asked the community over a six week period if we were on the right track? Have we missed anything? What do you think about the five key priority areas identified?

  1. Improve the cost efficiency of the waste disposal service
  2. Reduce waste to landfill
  3. Reduce incidence of dumped rubbish and litter
  4. Maintain overall customer satisfaction of the waste service
  5. Advocate on behalf of the community
