Waste Management Strategy


The City of Ballarat produced a Waste Management Policy in 2007, and the last City of Ballarat Waste Management Strategy was adopted in 2008. Since that time a number of legislative changes, federal and state government policy reviews, impact of carbon pricing and City of Ballarat policies have contributed to the review of Council’s Waste Management Strategy.


The recommended vision for Council’s Waste Management Strategy is: Ballarat’s waste management and resource recovery will deliver affordable outcomes for our community that consider long term social, environmental and financial impacts of investment in infrastructure, community education and service delivery.
