For the second year running, Gosnells residents have reduced the amount of waste they produce.
In 2020/21 the council collected almost 38,800 tonnes of household waste from residents and this amount fell to 38,300 tonnes in 2022/23.
This reduction in tonnage is even more impressive when it is noted that the city’s population is estimated to have increased by 3000 people between 2020/21 and 2022/23.
Mayor Terresa Lynes said it was great to see waste reduced.
“It is great to see that even though our population continues to increase, the waste that we generate is falling every year,” she said.
“We are pleased to see a downward trend in the waste generated per capita and I congratulate residents on their efforts to reduce waste.”
Tips for reducing waste and reusing and recycling where possible are available as part of the ‘Be a GREAT Sort’ campaign on the City’s website at gosnells.wa.gov.au.
