Consultation has concluded. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. At its meeting on Tuesday 15 December 2020, Council endorsed the Waste Plan 2020-2025.

Recycling Bin City of Subiaco

Background

All local governments that provide waste services are required to develop waste plans for the 2020-21 financial year, and perform their functions in respect of waste management in accordance with their waste plans.

The Draft Waste Plan 2020-2025 guides the City of Subiaco in sustainable waste and recycling practices. Our aim is to establish and maintain consistent, cost effective and functional waste management practices to reduce waste to landfill. This is driven by the targets set in the State Government’s Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery (WARR) Strategy 2030.

By 2025

  • Introduce a food organics and garden organics (FOGO) system.
  • Reduce household general waste by 5 per cent per capita.
  • Achieve a 67 per cent increase in materials diverted from landfill across Perth and Peel regions.

By 2030

  • Reduce household general waste by 10 per cent per capita.
  • Achieve a 70 per cent increase in waste material recovery in Perth and Peel regions.

The City and its community are working together towards a vision for Western Australia to become a sustainable low-waste circular economy in which human health and the environment are protected from the impacts of waste.

The three target areas driving our waste management actions are:

  • Avoid: Western Australians generate less waste.
  • Recover: Western Australians recover more value and resources from waste.
  • Protect: Western Australians protect the environment by managing waste responsibly.

You can read the Draft Waste Plan 2020-2025 (8.5MB) in the Document Library.
Consultation closed at 4pm, Friday 6 November.

Moving to FOGO

By 2025 the City must introduce a food organics and garden organics (FOGO) waste system. FOGO will be part of a three-bin waste system and is designed to divert food scraps and garden waste from landfill. FOGO waste is collected, processed and made into compost and mulch for use in parks and gardens. Introducing the FOGO system in the City of Subiaco is expected to divert around 66 per cent of recoverable waste from landfill.
