We work with the City of Mitcham to help achieve their waste management goals – current waste management strategic plan and targets are outlined in Planning for Tomorrow’s Community Today, the City of Mitcham’s strategic plan. Some key waste management approaches and targets include:
- Natural resources are conserved and waste is minimised either through avoidance, reuse, recycling or recovery.
- Target 67: Zero waste – Reduce waste to landfill by 35% by 2020 (baseline: 2002-03).
The City of Mitcham and East Waste are also committed to meeting the goals and targets outlined within the State’s overall waste strategy. Find out more about East Waste’s commitment to the environment and our waste management and recycling processes.
