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 consultation is now open and we want to hear from you. To begin the consultation, a directions paper has been released and is available to read. We encourage you to give feedback through the online survey or in writing.

How we are consulting the community and waste industry

The review includes the following opportunities to have your say:

Phase 1: Directions paper (this phase)

This directions paper sets out the key areas the Waste Authority proposes to focus on in the review and provides opportunity for you to comment.

Your input to this first phase of consultation will inform and help set the direction for the draft updated waste strategy. You will also have an opportunity to comment on the draft updated waste strategy later in the review.

Phase 2: Draft waste strategy (late 2023)

Feedback on the directions paper will inform the draft updated waste strategy, which will be released for consultation for a minimum of 12 weeks.

There will be public information sessions to work through the draft strategy and encourage feedback.

Feedback on the draft waste strategy will inform the final waste strategy.
