Avoid, reuse, recycle......a new waste strategy for our shire

Like many communities across Australia, Kempsey Shire Council is facing new challenges with our waste management, particularly solid waste.

Changes in policy nationally and internationally are impacting waste management. Council recognises the necessity for sustainable waste management services for our community and the importance of increased community expectations for Council to manage waste in a more sustainable way.

The Waste Management Strategy 2022 - 2032 will guide Council’s transition from providing an adequate waste management service, to one of leadership and innovation in resource recovery and waste prevention.

Tell us what you think!

Council has placed the draft Waste Management Strategy 2022-2032 on public exhibition for a minimum 28 days.

The community is encouraged to provide feedback to let us know whether we’ve got the strategy right or if there is anything missing.

Submissions can be made by providing a written response by the following methods:

1. Online submission form

2. A written submission addressed to:

General Manager
Kempsey Shire Council
PO Box 3078
West Kempsey 2440

Submissions are open until 22 February 2023.

What happens next?

At the end of the public exhibition period, Council will review the submissions and determine what amendments are required to the Waste Management Strategy.

Once any necessary changes are made, the Strategy will be reported to an upcoming Ordinary Meeting of Council for endorsement.
