    • We will continue to be a recognised knowledge base and source of expertise in resource recovery and waste management.

Key Challenges Affecting this Activity

    • Our ability to communicate the environmental benefits of processing technologies
    • Our ability to manage contractual complexities
    • Our ability to comply with regulatory obligations
    • Our ability to demonstrate our costs are balanced against the environmental benefits gained
    • Our ability to manage a diverse stakeholder group
OUR OBJECTIVES

We will increase the volume of recyclable and recovered material
We will ensure resources recovered are reused
We will continue to source and develop innovative options for the recovery of waste

What we will do

Objective 1.1

We will increase the volume of recyclable and recovered material
We will do this by:
a. Expanding the sources from where we receive waste
b. Extending our service offering to incorporate a wider catchment area and councils
c. Investigating new recycling opportunities to include streams such as e-waste, public place recycling and drop off services for problematic waste
d. Educating our communities to understand the importance of correct waste separation
We will know if we’re succeeding when:
    • There is an increase in volume percentage of available recycled material processed through the RRRC
    • There is an increase in diversion from landfill
To achieve this we will need to engage with:
    • The community, member councils, public and private sector

Objective 1.2

We will ensure resources recovered are reused
We will do this by:
a. Expand the options for the sale/reuse of the recovered materials
b. Educating our communities to understand the importance of the use of recovered materials
We will know if we’re succeeding when:
    • There is an increase in volume percentage of recovered materials sold/provided for reuse
To achieve this we will need to engage with:
    • Industry sectors that can potentially use recovered materials
    • Federal and State Government agencies

Objective 1.3

We will continue to source and develop innovative options for the recovery of waste
We will do this by:
    • Investigating the viability of new technologies for waste recovery
    • Investigating best use scenarios for our current technology and site
We will know if we’re succeeding when:
    • New waste solutions are implemented to replace current solutions
To achieve this we will need to engage with:
    • Federal and State Government agencies
