The Waste Reduction Group was contracted by Warrnambool City Council to undertake waste audits on a random kerbside collection of 80 litre general waste bins over five collection areas within the municipality.
The waste audit identifies weight and volume, waste streams and recyclables appearing in the general waste collection. This data has provided useful information in establishing a household waste profile for the residents of the Warrnambool.
In addition to these audits, Council provides data to contribute to Sustainability Victorias Annual Local Government Data Collection Survey. This survey provides estimated household recycling and waste weights based on the data submitted by the waste contractor to Council.
