South Australia's Waste Strategy 2015-2020 aims to ensure a healthy environment for South Australians now and into the future.  State and Local Government agencies, the waste management industry, business and the community have been involved in helping Green Industries SA to develop the waste strategy and guide the way in which waste is managed in South Australia.

The strategy establishes waste reduction goals and targets for South Australia and sets out a range of strategies and steps to achieve these goals and targets. For further information go to Green Industries SA

Whilst recycling reduces the amount of material going to landfill and facilitates re-use of materials which saves energy and valuable resources, Council encourages thinking ahead to minimise waste reduction by purchasing goods which have little material that requires disposal or recycling.
