A Steering Committee has now met twice to start this work. The steering committee meets approximately monthly to develop the details of the engagement process to capture the community’s views regarding the waste strategy, identify and assess options for changes to the provision of waste services, and through this, assist in the development of the draft strategy to present to Council.

Committee members include:

  • HRCC Representatives - Cr Grimble, John Martin, Jared Hammond, Kelvin Howe, Wendy Lynch
  • Grampians Central West Waste and Resource Recovery Group - La Vergne Lehmann
  • Waste Operators - Daryl Hobbs, Mick Morris, Bill Schmidt
  • Community Representatives - David Bowe, Rhonda Coffey, David Pratt, Steven Schultz, Heather Philips

Community input was sought on the issues that should be addressed in the report. The full list of issues raised is included in the Information Update 

Community input is welcomed at any stage through the strategy development.
