Glen Eira City Council moves ahead with Circular Economy Plan

Glen Eira City Council will lead the community towards a more sustainable future following the recent adoption of the Glen Eira Circular Economy Plan 2022–2026.

The Plan sets out how Council will lead by example and support the community move towards a sustainable and circular way of using resources where the materials we use can be reused, repurposed or recycled.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Jim Magee said the Circular Economy Plan builds on the vision and purpose set out by Our Climate Emergency Response Strategy 2021–2025 | Dhumbali Wurrungi-Biik Parbin-Ata.

“The Plan will ensure we continue to develop the great work in progress to keep materials in use for as long as possible, such as using recycled materials in our major projects, and supporting our community to reduce waste to landfill.”

Currently in the linear economy, we take materials and make them into products we eventually throw away as waste. To manage resources more sustainably, many countries, states and local councils are transitioning to a circular economy model.

In an ideal circular economy, nothing goes to waste — the materials we use in products would all be reused in a continuous loop, rather than becoming waste in landfill.

This Plan will guide how we can play our part, support our community and create a more sustainable Glen Eira.
