Waste Feasibility Study

Less Waste, More Resources: The future of waste management in our region

The Shire of Augusta Margaret River has commissioned an independent Feasibility Study to look at the future of waste management and resource recovery for the region. In the next few years, our landfill is reaching its capacity. Before it gets to that point, we are looking at how we currently manage waste in the region and how we can do it better.

The scope of the Study is wide ranging and over the next six months the Shire will be engaging with the local community, industry and experts in waste management to develop a suitable system to process our waste. This model will form the Waste Master Plan and will enable us to transition from landfill to resource recovery.

As a community member, this is a unique opportunity to tell us your ideas, to have input into how we manage our waste, to rethink its use as a resource and discover the options for doing it better. As the study progresses, the community will be invited to provide input at various stages of the project. Engagement will be primarily through on-line surveys, individual stakeholder interviews with key industry, business and community representatives, and community workshops.

At the end of the process, the Shire will consider two proposed models which will then be presented to the community.

Work on the study has commenced and will be completed by September 2018. We look forward to engaging with you in the near future.
