A major project for the CQ Local Government Association is the Central Queensland Waste Management Strategy (CQWMS). The purpose of the CQWMS is to develop methods to reduce waste productions, promote resource recovery and to realise better management of solid wastes and secondary resources within the CQ region.
The Strategy will:
- Produce economic benefits for the region via cost savings, employment and business generation;
- Reduce the risks to Councils and public in the operation of waste service;
- Promote resource sharing and utilisation between Councils (knowledge, contracts, staff, plant, facilities, etc);
- Increase efficiency and professionalism in the operation and management of wastes;
- Increase waste management and utilise knowledge within the community; and
- Show strong societal leadership in the area of sustainable development.
