District Council of Mallala
The District Council of Mallala is hoping to find new and better ways to manage waste through its draft waste management strategy, currently out for public consultation.
DCM has developed the strategy with hopes to meet the greater demands of local communities for better levels of environmental responsibility and more efficient use of resources with a plan that is consistent with the goals, outcomes and strategies of its own Strategic Plan, and also meets those of South Australia’s Waste Strategy 2011-2015.
The goals described in the strategy for 2014-2020 are:
To provide high quality and environmentally responsible kerbside waste and recycling collection service to online casino the community.
To ensure that the community is informed and actively participates in initiatives to provide environmentally responsible, economic and cost effective waste management services.
To ensure that Council operates and manages cost effective and best practice waste management facilities.
To ensure Council provides waste management services and facilities that meet the needs and expectations of the current and future community.
To ensure that Council conducts its operations and services in an environmentally sustainable manner.
DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto said the plan would help streamline council’s waste management practices and plan for waste management into the future.
“The strategy identifies the areas that council will look at,” Mr Mansueto said.
“A key focus is to improve recycling, reduce land fill and try to manage the cost of delivering such services.”
The draft waste management strategy can be viewed at the DCM website www.mallala.sa.gov.au.
