Let's talk garbage

Camden Council’s Waste and City Presentation Branch is developing a new Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy.

We are currently seeking information from residents about what works now, as well as how we can improve waste management and reduce landfill into the future.

The information gathered will be used to draft a long term strategy and explore options for a Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) service.

Share your thoughts

There are a few ways you can get involved and help shape the strategy and services we provide:

  • Use the ideas board to describe your needs and see what others have added.
  • Participate in a focus group - we will be conducting 4 focus groups to clarify feedback from the survey, if you wish to take part please use the EOI Form below to express an interest by 12 July 2022.
  • Survey closed 9am, Monday 13 June 2022

Ideas Board

Do you have an idea for the future management of waste?

As our population continues to grow there is a great need for waste to be managed well. Use this space to share your ideas, examples of initiatives that work in other areas or innovative processes.

4th bin glass recycling is the next step after FOGO. Too much recycling is contaminated by broken glass.

FOGO is a must but provide kitchen caddies. Ensure that supermarkets have proper compostable bin liners, properly labelled, not biodegradabe
