Waste and recycling forum for regional SA

waste forum

A two-day waste and recycling forum on May 27-28 will look at how council and community can work together to reduce waste to landfill and add value to the services provided within regional South Australia.

Local Government, industry, community and social enterprises play an important role in the reduction of waste to landfill in regional Australia.

The forum, two half days, will focus on the recently released Legatus Group waste resource and recovery strategy and action plan. It will cover the role that councils and community have in delivering on the regional targets for the reduction of waste to landfill which includes recycling in the community and how to add value to the services provided within regional SA.

The role of local government will be the focus of a session on Friday 27 May, from 1pm-4pm. This session is well suited to elected members and operation officers with interest for industry and community. A separate networking event and dinner is being organised for the Friday night.

On Saturday 28 May, from 10am-12.30pm there will be a forum about community involvement. The session is suited for community groups, industry and social enterprise with interest for elected members and operational staff.

Forums will be held at The Vale, Watervale Community Centre, South Australia.
