Waste and Recycling

Waste Services and COVID-19

Glenorchy City Council’s Waste Services team would like to reassure residents that kerbside collection is continuing as normal, and we have already established protocols with our contractors if this situation changes. 

The Jackson Street Waste Management Centre will also remain open subject to weather conditions. Please check the Jackson Street Landfill website for real-time updates before making a trip to the landfill.    

If there are any changes to waste collection service levels we will make an announcement on our Coronavirus Information web page.  Please continue to be a good sort and put your rubbish, recycling and FOGO waste in the correct bins as usual.


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.
