With funding from the Natural Disaster Resilience Program 2017-18, WALGA is working with the State to embed waste management considerations into local emergency management planning and response mechanisms. Through this project, key issues relating to the legislative framework which governs waste and emergency management activities in recovery have been identified, along with stakeholder views on roles and responsibilities. The Reports are available online.

WALGA is hosting a workshop for Local Government officers to gather feedback on a Draft Framework designed to assist Local Government in planning for, and responding to, debris generated in various emergency situations. The Draft Framework outlines a process that Local Government Emergency Management practitioners can use to begin engaging the waste management industry in the context of recovery (Phase 1), assess the likely implications of debris in their local area (Phase 2), develop and assess statements of capacity (Phase 3), and empower their Council to make an informed decision on the approaches that will be taken towards the management of waste in recovery (Phase 4).

The State Government has also initiated a Project examining this issue from a State wide perspective. An introduction to this Project, and associated tools will be provided.

To register, please complete the online form by COB Wednesday 20 June.

Those unable to attend, can provide feedback on the questions included in the Draft Framework to Heather Squire, Waste Management Specialist, by COB Friday 6 July 2018.
