Our future waste

date_range

schedule 09:00 PM

Have your say on the future of waste and resource recovery on the Sunshine Coast, including a third bin to capture food and garden waste (FOGO) by completing the online survey

 

Around half of the material in Sunshine Coast household general waste bins could be diverted from landfill and recycled.

Sunshine Coast Council is therefore looking at how we collect waste from households to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from landfill and achieve recycling targets outlined in the Queensland Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy.

We are very interested in your views on the introduction of a third bin for collection of food organics and garden organics. The frequently asked questions explain how a third bin may work for our region.

Your input will help inform council on how waste is managed across the region into the future.

We want to know what changes you’d be willing to make for a sustainable future.

Fill out the survey before 5pm, Tuesday 2 March, 2021.

Overview

To support a thriving community now and into the future it is critical that we manage our energy, waste and natural resources efficiently and sustainably, which is why council is working through actions from our Sunshine Coast Waste Strategy 2015 – 2025.

These actions require us to explore how waste and resource recovery on the Sunshine Coast will look in the future and we are seeking community input.

Though this survey, we hope to gain ideas and feedback to help guide any future changes in how council collects and processes your waste.

We are exploring options to change the current waste collection system.

Tell us your views on a third bin for food and garden waste.

Please fill out the online survey or a paper version of the survey can be completed at any Sunshine Coast Council library

Survey closes 5pm, Monday 2 March, 2021
