Sunshine Coast Resource Recovery Strategy 2023

The Sunshine Coast Resource Recovery Strategy guides council’s circular economy approach to waste management.

The strategy aims to reduce waste and lead the way to a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future.

Better waste management will help protect the environment, both now and in the future.


A circular economy approach means waste is seen as a valuable resource to be reused again and again.

The strategy:

  • supports council’s vision as ‘Australia’s most sustainable region and our target to be a zero-net emissions organisation by 2041
  • focuses on providing sustainable waste management that supports our community
  • aims to have well planned infrastructure and services in place, that embrace any future waste industry changes
  • sets a goal to have zero waste going to landfill by 2041.

The main actions for the strategy include:

  • better access to resource recovery services
  • education of waste management
  • move to a circular economy
  • manage waste to reduce emissions
  • build better value for money infrastructure.
