About this survey

Katherine Town Council is developing a waste management strategy to provide a strategic framework to guide council decisions about how waste is managed in Katherine.

The ten year strategy will focus on the three R’s; reduce, re-use and recycle. It will look into potential options for future waste management tools and facilities.

We are seeking feedback from the community about ideas, attitudes and behaviours towards waste management. To find out more visit www.katherine.nt.gov.au.

There are two separate surveys for residential and commercial users. This survey is for residential users and is open until 10 November 2020.
