City of Kwinana Waste Plan 2021-2025
The City’s Waste Plan ensures that waste avoidance and environmental protection is an integral part of the City’s activities. The City aims to achieve a sustainable, cost effective and best practice approach to waste management that supports our community, economy and environment. The Waste Plan has been guided by the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Act 2007 and the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030. The Waste Plan’s overarching objectives directly align with those of the Waste Strategy 2030 as follows;
- Avoid; generate less waste
- Recover; recover more value and resources from waste
- Protect; protect the environment by managing waste responsibly
To ensure that we are working towards these goals, the City needs you to avoid, recover and protect our environment by thinking before you throw.

To enhance and protect our environment, the City is committed to preventing litter and illegal dumping, removing litter and illegal dumping as soon as practicable, and educating our community as litter and illegal dumping can cause significant environmental, social and economic impacts, including reduced visual amenity, harm to wildlife and costly clean-ups.
To ensure that we are working towards our goals in the Waste Plan, the City created a Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan in 2023 outlining goals as well as actions planned to achieve our goals. The goals of this plan are to:
- Reduce litter and illegal dumping
- Improve how litter and illegal dumping is managed
