The department’s Waste reduction and recycling plan 2018–2021 (PDF, 414 KB) (the Plan) has been developed in accordance with the Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011. The Plan addresses issues around waste reduction and recycling and applies to all departmental employees.

The Plan reflects the department’s commitment to strive towards best practice as a means of contributing towards the targets in the Queensland’s waste management strategy Waste – Everyone’s Responsibility: Queensland Waste Avoidance and Resource Productivity Strategy (2014–2024). All staff have a significant part to play in reducing waste generation, reusing materials wherever possible and recycling waste into appropriate receptacles.

Please familiarise yourself with the departmental initiatives, actions and targets attached to the Plan and be cognisant of the part you can play in managing the department’s waste.
