From August to November 2018, Council conducted a 3 stage community consultation process, to find out what were the main concerns of Hornsby Shire residents regarding waste and what their priorities are in addressing these issues.
You told us these were your most important waste issues:
In August 2018, ‘Waste Matters’ pop-up stalls were located at Hornsby, Beecroft, Galston and Berowra Heights. We asked the community what we should do to further reduce waste going to landfill.
From 24 September to 14 October 2018, Council conducted an online survey asking for the community’s opinions and expectations of how waste should be managed in Hornsby Shire.
Two community focus groups were held in November 2018 to explore issues around bulky waste collections and illegal dumping in more detail. A total of 25 participants were involved.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on our Waste Matters Strategy – submissions have now closed.
