  • With the problems identified with MUD' developments and their waste disposal issues. Why is this not one of the important issues to be considered /incorporated in the plans when approvals are put through the city. If they are not included and are suitable, then don't approve the plans.

    Thanks for your question.

    The City currently has waste guidelines for new developments which outline the requirements of a Waste Management Plan (WMP) and include sections for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. Developers are provided with this document and have to provide a WMP as part of their application, which has to address how the development will manage waste, including generation rate, storage and collection of refuse and recycling.

  • Be good to define what “Climate Change” means. Is it encompassing global warming, for example, weather patterns, etc?

    Thank you for your question and for your suggestion to define climate change as it relates to the Waste and Resource Management Plan (WRMP). We will include information on this in the draft WRMP’s definitions.

    Climate change refers to a shift in global climates caused by an increase in greenhouse gases (GHG). It is now widely accepted that human activities are increasing GHG levels in our atmosphere, which is ultimately leading to a shift in global temperatures and weather patterns and more extreme weather events. Climate change is a key issue for Local Governments that impacts almost all aspects of their operations and responsibilities including waste management.

    Please visit the City’s website for more information on the City’s approach to managing the effects of climate change.
