City of Nedlands Waste Minimisation Strategy and Action Plan 2017-2020

The City of Nedlands is on track to divert 65 per cent of all waste from landfill by 2020, after its latest Waste Minimisation Strategy was approved by Council.

The Waste Minimisation Strategy 2017-2020 will guide the City, with the support of the community, in its efforts improve the diversion of waste over the next three years. 

Methods of improving waste diversion will focus on:

  • Exploring the practicality of co-mingling food scraps with green waste. 
  • Combinations of waste bins and collection processes. 
  • Recycling construction and demolition waste. 
  • Working with schools through education and information. 
  • Reducing the amount of the illegal dumping. 
  • Researching new technologies that could produce energy from waste. 
  • Enhancing the management of commercial waste.
