Help shape the future of Ballarat's waste!

This consultation will inform future strategies which will cover local waste reduction and diversion targets, waste education, the City of Ballarat’s non-kerbside services, such as hard waste collection, litter and illegal dumping.

Questions in the consultation include:

  • How should we remove waste, that doesn’t go into your bins, from residential dwellings?
  • What opportunities are there to change the way we reuse, repair, and recycle? These could include clothing swaps, considered purchasing and repair opportunities.
  • What type of waste and resource recovery services do commercial and industrial businesses want from the City of Ballarat?
  • How do we effectively manage waste and recycling from our public spaces?

You can get involved by:

  • Answering these questions here on our MySay page (they will only take you 5-10 minutes and will help shape the future of Ballarat's waste!)
  • Attend one of our workshops:
