Glenorchy’s waste strategy

Glenorchy’s Waste Management Strategy has three key goals:

1.            To promote the sustainable management of resources;

2.            To provide convenient and affordable waste services that meet the needs of the community;

3.            To minimise negative impacts of waste on the natural and built environments.

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.

This is why the Glenorchy City Council 2013-2023 Waste Management Strategy (PDF) included a requirement for review five years after its adoption in 2014.   This review occurred in 2019, with the Strategy also updated in 2020 to reflect the adoption of FOGO (Food Organic Garden Organic) as a third kerbside waste collection service.
