NQ Regional Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan

NQ Regional Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan

Hinchinbrook Shire Council has teamed up with the Townsville City Council, Burdekin Shire Council and Charters Towers Regional Council in the development and implementation of the NQ Regional Waste Reduction & Recycling Plan 2014 - 2024.

The plan addresses anticipated population growth and waste forecasts and the infrastructure which will be required to cope with future generated waste.

The NQ Regional WRRP working group is continually investigating cost effective methods of dealing with wastes, including alternative waste technologies, to assist the region in coping with future waste quantities in such a way as to ensure environmental sustainability.
