Have your say in WA’s waste strategy review

Closed 11 Jul 2023

Opened 30 May 2023


Western Australia’s Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 (waste strategy) sets out objectives and strategies for transitioning the state towards a circular economy.

Released in 2019, the strategy contains a vision for WA to become a sustainable, low‑waste, circular economy in which public health and the environment are protected from the impacts of waste.

The Waste Authority is leading a review of the waste strategy. The review provides an opportunity to reflect on how it is performing, what is working, and what it could do differently.

The Waste Authority sought feedback on the Directions paper, which set out key areas the Waste Authority proposed to focus on in the review. Consultation feedback was provided through stakeholder and community surveys as well as written submissions.

The public consultation period ran from 30 May 2023 to 11 July 2023.

Consultation update

We thank everyone who made a submission during the first consultation phase. We are in the process of incorporating the feedback into a revised waste strategy, for further consultation in early 2024.
