Wyndham City is looking for two people from the community to join the Wests Road Refuse Disposal Facility and Waste Management Community Reference Group.
The Wests Road Refuse Disposal Facility is owned and operated by Council. Council aims to run a successful and sustainable business providing waste management services, with minimal impact on the local environment and community. The RDF currently provides an important waste disposal service to metropolitan Melbourne and Geelong. There is also a recycling transfer station and a resale shed on the site.
The Wests Road Refuse Disposal Facility and Waste Management Community Reference Group was established in 2013 to provide an important and regular forum for Council and the community to discuss the current and future operations of the RDF and waste management services in Wyndham.
The Community Reference Group is involved in the possibility of alternative waste treatments to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, rehabilitation and landscaping of the RDF site, changes to bin collections and environmental performance of the RDF.
The Community Reference Group is made up of nine community representatives, Councillors, Council staff and a representative from the Western Region Metropolitan Waste Group. The Group is seeking two new members with an interest and some understanding of environment, landfills, resource recovery and some experience or understanding of how a community advisory committee works.
Meetings are currently held every two months on a Thursday afternoon from 4:30 to 7pm. Membership is a three year period.
More information about the scope, purpose, authority, membership and meeting arrangements are contained in the Group’s Terms of Reference.
