Waste and the management of waste is an issue that not only affects all local governments in WA, but the emerging issues of FOGO (food organics and garden organics) and waste to energy (incinerating waste to generate electricity) will directly impact on how the community deals with waste and how waste is disposed of. This forum will cover the recently released WA Waste Strategy 2030, particularly in relation to where the State sees FOGO and waste to energy fitting into the "big picture".
FOGO and waste to energy aren't necessarily compatible as they take the waste stream down different paths. The forum will consider the City of Melville's recently completed trial of FOGO, which they will now be rolling out across the City. The waste to energy is a significant change to the way waste has been traditionally dealt with through landfill, with the Rivers Regional Council embracing the waste to energy concept and not going down the FOGO path.
How do FOGO and waste to energy initiatives fit into the Waste Strategy 2030, or do they?
The forum will finish up with the speakers participating in a Q & A panel.
