About Waste Action Group
Lisa Richards - team leader
Our Vision: To Reduce Waste and Litter. We want a cleaner, less wasteful world.
Our Mantra: Refuse, Reduce, Re-educate, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Rot (everything else to Landfill)
Our Values: We are creators rather than consumers who see waste as a resource and buy only what we need.
We are a passionate and active group who work in partnership with many other organisations across the Ranges to achieve our goals. Our long term goals include:
A Container Deposit Scheme in Victoria.
End single-use plastics at Macedon Ranges events by 2020.
Change attitudes by educating on waste streams, resource recovery and littering.
Build and improve community-based small actions to reduce waste and litter.
Increase the number of water fountains in public spaces and shopping centres by 2020.
End food waste in landfill: ALL food waste to go in kerbside collection from 2020.
