Have your say in WA’s waste strategy review

Closes 21 Aug 2024

Opened 29 May 2024


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 we are performing, what is working, and what we could do differently.

In 2023, the Waste Authority sought feedback on the Directions paper, which set out key areas it proposed to focus on in the review. Consultation feedback was provided through surveys and written submissions, and informed development of the revised waste strategy, which is now open for 12 weeks of public consultation.

The revised waste strategy and 1-page priority summaries can be accessed at the bottom of this page.

We encourage everyone to take part and have their say in shaping the future of our state. The updated waste strategy is now available to stakeholders to review and provide feedback until 5 pm on 21 August 2024.

Register your attendance to attend an online information session on 1 July 2024.
