The Mornington Peninsula Shire is committed to best practice waste management and moving towards a zero waste peninsula.
Our inaugural War on Waste Forum & Expo was held on Sunday 29 October at Dromana.
The event gave insights on how we can deal with waste in the future through a series of presentations, demonstrations and stalls showcasing local initiatives in waste reduction, plastics avoidance and litter prevention.
The Shire encourages our community join the war on waste by implementing waste reduction strategies in their own home and at work, as well as learning about the future in waste management.
Council continues its war on waste, combining a restructure of waste processing activities with the awarding of new waste contracts to achieve a saving to the community of $2.42 million per annum and resolving to write to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change to advocate for an alternate waste technology facility in in the South East Metropolitan Area.
