Posted March 30, 2019 11:01:37The West Australian Government has just issued a Waste Connectivity Management Agreement with the Mt.
Isa District Council.
The agreement covers the Mt Isa District and includes a requirement that all waste connections be completed by April 2019.
It is hoped that this will be the first of many projects the West Australian Department of Environment and Water releases in the coming years to manage waste in the region.
In an interview with ABC Radio West, Minister for Primary Industries and Resources Steve Chibber said waste connections in Mt Isa would be one of the key aspects of the WA Government’s Waste Management Strategy for 2018-2022.
“I’ve said for a long time that we’re going to have waste connections by 2019-2021,” Mr Chibbers said.
“Waste connections will be one thing to address, and we’re also going to be focusing on water management as well.”
But to do that, we need to make sure we’ve got the right infrastructure in place, and in terms of where we have waste, it will be very difficult to get that through the community without it being monitored, and that’s the only way to make a connection.
“Mr Chibbery said he was looking forward to working with the local community to make it happen.
He said the West Australia Government was committed to creating jobs in Mt.
Ida and the West Coast by 2020.”
The more people who get back into the community, the more people we can support.””
[The West Coast] will need to invest in the infrastructure to get the people back and the people in the community back into business and start to support businesses.”
The more people who get back into the community, the more people we can support.
“It will also be great for the health and wellbeing of the West Australians.
Waste Connectivity is a key aspect of the Waste Management strategy.
