Waste Management Strategy The purpose of this strategy is to position Casey in the best place possible to optimise opportunities such as grants, and contract alignment to maximize the benefits of advancements in technology.

Since the last strategy, significant new contracts for waste services have been established for kerbside waste collection and are currently performing well.

During the next six years, this strategy will provide a context for the extension or granting of new contracts to ensure Casey is adopting best practice approaches. New contracts provide an opportunity to negotiate new service offerings, which enable Casey to contribute to the broader state-wide recovery objectives.

This strategy will be implemented in three stages. At each stage, an interim report will be created outlining progress including outcomes of investigations and recommendations.
