Burdekin Shire takes a proactive role in the collection of waste to keep our most valuable resource – our water – clean and clear.
The councils of Burdekin, Townsville, Charters Towers and Hinchinbrook not only collaborated together but also engaged with the local communities to develop the NQ Regional Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan 2014-2024. You can download the plan using the link in the Related Documents section below.
The plan sets out how our local communities will manage waste in the future. Our participation in the NQ Regional Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan will ensure that, in conjunction with our neighbouring shires, our waste management practices are efficient and protect our region’s environment.
The plan aims to provide a coordinated approach to promote waste avoidance and reduction, encourage efficiencies across the council regions and modernise waste management.
