Katherine Town Council Launches Waste Management Consultation

Published on Tuesday, 13 October 2020 at 3:35:25 PM

Consultation is now open to help inform Katherine Town Council’s waste management strategy.

Katherine Town Council is developing a waste management strategy to provide a strategic framework to guide Council decisions about how waste is managed in Katherine.

Council wants to better understand how Katherine residents and businesses manage their waste and want to hear their thoughts on how this can be better managed over the next ten years.

Katherine Town Council Deputy Mayor Peter Gazey said more could be done to increase resource recovery in Katherine.

“A small portion of our waste in Katherine goes to recycling streams which is significantly lower than most Australian cities and we must do better, we need to look for other viable ways to reduce landfill” Deputy Mayor Gazey said.

“As a community we need to manage our waste better to ensure our town is a liveable and vibrant place now and into the future.”

True North Strategic Communication is now engaging with the community on behalf of Council to gather feedback about ideas, attitudes and behaviours towards waste management. Consultation is open for four weeks from 13 October to 10 November 2020.
