Regional Waste Group: We facilitated the formation of a committee to identify and provide solutions to waste issues for communities across the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin.
The inaugural meeting was held in Dalby in November 2013, with the committee made up of
- Toowoomba Regional
- Western Downs Regional
- Goondiwindi Regional
- Balonne Shire,
- Southern Downs, and
- Maranoa Regional councils.
Waste is an issue all councils are addressing and this committee, made up of the reprentatives of each council’s environment and waste portfolios helps to do this in a collaborative way. This Committee now meets on a quarterly basis.
One of the priority areas identified was roadside litter which led to the development of the South West Region Roadside Litter Project and the Rethink Regional Rubbish project.
You can read more about those projects here.
Building on this collaboration, QMDC has partnered with waste collection company JJ Richards & Sons to recycle waste oil on farms and from business houses. Read more about that here.
