The City of Unley is committed to reducing waste, from both its own operations and the community, and to the management of waste in a sustainable manner. Council offers several options for recycling and waste disposal including kerbside collections, hard rubbish collections and a range of other services and education programs to support our community.
This work is guided by the Waste Management Strategy 2013-2017(PDF, 1MB) which includes activities to provide innovative and responsive waste management practices that promote recycling and reduce waste. It incorporates best management practices to manage the waste collected by Council.
Key initiatives that fall under this theme include:
Domestic Waste – education, re-use, organics, hard rubbish
Commercial Waste – organics, recycle construction
Council leader in waste management – alternate recycling, operations, our usage.
