Information on how to live sustainably is now easier to find thanks to an upgrade to Wellington Shire Council’s online resources for residents and local businesses.
The Council’s website update includes an in-depth review of all things sustainability and the environment.
This is part of a commitment made by the Board in its 2020-24 sustainability strategy to keep the community engaged and informed about a sustainable lifestyle.
One of the new features in the Environment section of the website is “Responding to Climate Change”, which details what climate change means for the Gippsland region and the Wellington Shire. It also gives practical advice on how Wellington residents can prepare for and adapt to climate change.
Updates on green waste disposal plans, including the proposed green bin collection service, are available in the recently expanded “Waste Management” section.
With hard waste collection underway over the next few weeks in the county, residents will be able to stay informed of dates, guidelines and size limits by visiting the website.
You’ll also find a lot of information on the website in the “Guide to Sustainable Living,” including details on gardening and food production, and tips on becoming a sustainable business.
Residents are encouraged to learn more about sustainability and the environment by visiting the Council’s website at www.wellington.vic.gov.au and by clicking on the ‘Environment’ menu at the top right of the home page.
