Business Plan 2014-15

South Australia’s Waste Strategy 2011-2015 provides the framework for Zero Waste SA’s business plan for 2014-15. It guides Zero Waste SA’s work through two key objectives: 1. Maximise the useful life of resources through reuse and recycling 2. Avoid and reduce waste. Against the Waste Strategy’s two objectives, this business plan specifies goals and priorities for action across the three broad waste-generating sectors of the community: municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste, and construction and demolition waste. The review also identified there is significant potential for future gains in waste management and resource recovery, particularly in relation to: Planning for waste infrastructure to guide investment, reduce the cost of living, grow the economy and create jobs. Industry resource efficiency to continue to return environmental and economic benefits to industry and businesses. Government resource efficiency. The Recycle Right® household education program to encourage better recycling practices at the kerbside. The State Government has foreshadowed the creation of a new body from 1 July 2015 to move to the next phase of the State Government’s waste management strategy. This business plan outlines the activities it will undertake to work towards achieving the objectives of the Waste Strategy, with a focus on initiatives that will make lasting changes. I commend the commitment of Zero Waste SA staff to deliver programs that have strong ‘cut through’ and strong stakeholder support, critical to the successful track record of the organisation. It is dynamic and lean, employing skilled staff, and has impressive collective expertise that is called upon by all levels of government, business and the broader community. To Zero Waste SA’s partners, supporters, program participants and passionate advocates for the zero waste mission, thank you. We are creating a more sustainable future for South Australians through improved and leading edge practices.
