Keep Australia Beautiful WA's major strategic partner
The Waste Authority is a statutory body of the State Government of WA, and provides independent policy advice to the Government on all waste management issues. It was formed under the provisions of the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Act 2007. The Authority’s main task is developing a comprehensive statewide waste strategy and coordinating its implementation. The waste strategy will set clear targets for waste reduction and resource recovery, as well as laying out a plan for continuous improvement to achieve those targets. The Authority consults widely with industry, the community and local government as well as associations, other State Government agencies and the federal government.
