Have Your Say: Beyond Zero Waste Strategy Review

Following a review of the Waste Strategy in 2019 we’re asking the local community, including visitors and residents, to provide feedback and suggestions on the Draft Beyond Zero Waste Strategy. 
This Strategy has been developed following extensive community consultation and will set targets to eliminate waste sent directly to landfill on the Mornington Peninsula Shire by 2030. 
The Strategy aims to bring together ideas from the community, from everyday actions to innovation on approaches to resource recovery and recycling.  
The Shire is proud of the local active and engaged community who have led a wide range of successful local initiatives to improve waste and litter management across the region. 
The 10-year Strategy proposes strategic objectives including: 
·        Empower the community to avoid, reuse and recycle
·        Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
·        Maximise Resource Recovery
·        Maintain a Clean and Healthy Peninsula
·        Improve reporting and monitor progress toward achieving zero waste
·        Advocate for regional and state solutions and support innovative local circular economy
