Waste Strategy Development Project

Lake Macquarie City Council wants you to have your say about the future of waste management for the region.

LMCC is committed to engaging with you on issues that affect your everyday life and the future of our community. Waste management is one of these issues.

LMCC is currently developing a waste management strategy to address the waste issues we face with the limited capacity of Awaba Landfill and the increasing NSW State Government Landfill Levy.

What you think about how we manage waste is important in making sure we develop a waste system that meets your expectations, socially, environmentally and economically.

LMCC wants to hear how you think we should handle our waste in the future so we can develop a long-term sustainable future for our community.

    Under the new plans, Council staff will meet with multi-unit dwelling managers and townhouse residents to figure out how many and what type of green waste bins will work best for their situation. Options will include a range of bin sizes from 140 litres to 1,100 litres and include the standard 240 litre size bins. Service frequency will also be discussed.

    "The consultation is expected to start in the next few months and Council is hopeful it will resolve challenges around the provision of
    the new service," Mr Farrell said.

    The new three-bin system will enable the city as a whole to divert up to 70% of household waste from Awaba landfill and turn it into a valuable compost product.

    Details on the consultation plan can be found in the report on Provision of a Green Waste Collection Service for Multi Unit Dwellings.
