The Launceston City CouncilContinue reading
The Launceston City Council is seeking your feedback on the best ways to recover recyclables from waste generated by the community. A one page introduction to the project tells you of Council's commitment to the future management of waste and recycling, the work carried out to date and how we plan to improve current recycling rates.
A report from Blue Environment, a consultancy firm commissioned by Council to investigate the feasibility of achieving 90% diversion from landfill with an emphasis on local jobs, local business and industry growth and the environment, has been completed. In response to this report, the Launceston City Council has prepared an interim strategy and action plan (ISAP), proposing five actions to improve resource recovery.
We invite your input into this interim strategy. You're invited to:
. take a few minutes to complete the quick poll
. take a few minutes to complete the quick surveys
. read the one page information sheets on each of the five actions
. download related documents
. add your comments and ideas to each of the discussion topics
. come along to one of our information sessions
This is your city, your future. Take this opportunity and have your say in its future!
