Draft State waste infrastructure plan

Closed 23 Jun 2023

Opened 4 Apr 2023


Long-term planning for waste infrastructure at a state level is the basis of headline strategy 6 in the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 Action Plan. It supports the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 vision for the state to become a sustainable, low-waste, circular economy in which human health and the environment are protected from the impacts of waste.

The draft state waste infrastructure plan has been developed to provide a long-term information framework to guide decision-making for the planning and development of waste infrastructure in Western Australia.

With an outlook to 2050, it focuses on the built waste and recycling infrastructure needed for the state to achieve waste strategy targets in 2030.

The draft infrastructure plan includes some of the waste infrastructure characteristics, needs, challenges and opportunities unique to each region, and outlines government waste infrastructure principles.
