Re-Thinking Waste on King Island
King Island Council is developing a new Waste Strategy to guide the next 10 years. Working with A.Prince Consulting, we are seeking your views and opinions to help us understand how you manage your waste now and what would be your preferences for the future. There are many challenges living on an island, but also some unique opportunities.
Community and stakeholder views were gained through 123 responses to the community survey and 31 responses to the commercial waste survey. 29 interviews were conducted at the Charles Street Waste Management Centre, and a number of business and community stakeholders attended one-on-one meetings and public drop-in sessions. The results of this consultation are provided in the report below.
A presentation to Councillors at their June workshop built on the observations of the consultant and stakeholder feedback to outline the basis of the draft Waste Strategy. Work to finalise this strategy is now being aligned with the delivery of an updated Environmental Management Plan for the Charles Street and Parenna facilities and is expected to be presented to Council in August 2019.
