COVID-19 Second Wave Planning

Published on Thursday, 12 November 2020 at 11:00:08 AM

WALGA, working with Local Governments and WALGA Preferred Suppliers, has developed a staged approach to how waste management would be dealt with in relation to Second Wave of COVID-19.

Local Government and the waste industry were well organised and quickly responded to the first wave of COVID-19, putting in place comprehensive business continuity and contingency plans. There is the potential – as happened in Victoria – for a second wave. Therefore WALGA, working with Local Governments and Preferred Suppliers, has developed the attached Second Wave Planning document which identifies the various waste management activities which would change based on the levels of restriction that are imposed in response to a second wave. WALGA also sought advice from the Industrial Relations Team within WALGA regarding worker safety issues.
