Waste and Recycling

Our Vision 

We have a vision for the future Glenorchy – a clean, safe and vibrant city that makes all of us proud. A city where we work together to minimise waste and conserve resources for the future. 

We believe Glenorchy can be a leader in resource recovery. A clear strategy that is both aspirational and realistic will help us to continue to demonstrate leadership in waste reduction and management – provided it remains up-to-date and focused on the right activities. 

That’s why the Glenorchy City Council 2013-2023 Waste Management Strategy included a requirement for review five years after its adoption in 2014. 

This revised strategy sets out three key goals with supporting objectives, underpinned by the City of Glenorchy Community Goals. It also includes an updated action plan to ensure they are achieved.
