How do we reduce the amount of waste the ACT generates? What does waste have to do with climate change?
The Department of the Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water is seeking input from the community on the ACT Government’s draft ACT Sustainable Waste Strategy 2010–2025.
The draft strategy aims for the ACT to lead innovation in the management of waste to achieve full resource recovery and a carbon neutral waste sector.
