Waste Local Law 2021

The Shire of Broome Waste Local Law 2021 was gazetted on March 30, 2021, after public advertising in local and State newspapers and Council adoption at the February 2021 Ordinary Meeting of Council.

The purpose of the Waste Local Law is to regulate and control the storage, collection and disposal of waste and recycling material for the benefit of the community and the protection of the environment.

The existing Council Waste Policy and Local Health Law have no prescribed form to issue infringements and are not prescriptive.

The Shire of Broome Waste Local Law 2021 supersedes the existing Waste Policy and Health Local Law, is detailed and allows for penalties to be applied for offences.

The Waste Local Law template is progressively being adopted by Councils around the State.
