Superannuation scheme needs changing
The City of Greater Bendigo is developing a Waste and Resource Management Strategy to guide how we will deal with our waste in future.
We are seeking input from the community to help inform this strategy.
We invite you to complete our resident waste survey or attend one of our listening posts.
Further information is available in the Waste and Resource Management Strategy November update or from our Waste and Resource Management Strategy page.
Every year Victorians throw out enough food waste to fill the MCG three times!
Waste reduction starts at home.
We all pay for our waste disposal services via rates, landfill levies and various charges on goods and services.
Everyone has a stake in reducing waste and as a result, reducing our impact on the natural environment.
The preferred option is to not have any waste at all.
Use the waste hierarchy next time you go shopping, clean out the cupboards or throw something in the bin.
Do I need it?
How long will it last for?
Is it a quality product?
Buy less waste.
Avoid disposable items.
Choose products with little packaging.
Say 'no' to plastic bags.
Buy in bulk when possible.
Look for opportunities to use items again.
Reuse glass and plastic containers.
Donate old clothes, books and toys to charities.
Recycle correctly at home
Paper, glass, plastic, metal cans and tins can all be placed in your yellow lid bin. These materials are a reusable resource.
Landfill - the final option
If the item is not suitable for any of the above options, it can be disposed of at a landfill centre.
