Draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030

Project Overview

Have Your Say and help shape the future of waste and recycling in Moorabool.

The survey is now closed. Thanks for participating.

As Moorabool's population grows, and the waste system in Australia transforms, we need to find better ways to manage our resources to ensure the environment is protected for generations to come.

We are pleased to present our Draft Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 for community comment. The document reflects community feedback gathered in phase one and aligns with state/national waste reduction targets and legislation.

Community consultation - phase one – June/July 2021

In 2021 we received more than 700 contributions from resident’s completion of our waste survey which asked for feedback on:

  • Current waste services
  • Future services i.e. The Victorian government’s mandated 4 stream waste and recycling system and the Container Deposit Scheme
  • Transfer stations
  • Litter and illegal dumping
  • Hard waste service options
  • Waste avoidance and education initiatives

Draft strategy vision

To transform the Moorabool Shire into a low-waste municipality by embracing sustainable practices that increase resource recovery, encourage a circular economy and protect the environment.


  1. Avoid waste creation though education initiatives and improved management practices
  2. Recover more materials by viewing waste as a resource
  3. Protect our community and the environment from the impacts of waste


To achieve our goals, 27 key actions for delivery throughout the life of the strategy have been prepared.

Community consultation – phase two – February to March 2022

We are now seeking feedback from our community regarding the actions outlined under each goal within the Draft Strategy.
