Waste Matters - Council's Waste Strategy
Council is preparing a new Waste Strategy to assist in guiding the future direction of waste management in the Hornsby Shire.
Council’s current Collection and Processing Contracts will expire in 2020. Our Waste Strategy will guide us in the planning of replacement contracts, and we would like your feedback on how we can improve our services.
You can get involved and have your say on the waste services we provide and our new Waste Strategy. We held a number of Waste Matters Pop-up Stalls in early August 2018 from which we received great feedback from the community.
In September/October 2018,we ran an online survey for the broader community to have their say. We received over 1200 responses which will be analysed and the findings will be prepared into a report.
Commercial Building Colour Scheme Survey
Council is considering whether to seek a change to planning legislation to enable Council to dictate the colours commercial buildings can be painted. Council sought your views about the colour of buildings within the non-heritage commercial areas of Hornsby Shire via a survey in July/August 2018.
A report on the outcomes will be available shortly.
Community Strategic Plan Consultation
Want to know what is the vision that residents have for the future of Hornsby Shire? We conducted research in October and November 2017 to find out what you like about living here and what you think would make the Shire a better place.
If you have an issue that you would like to discuss with one of Hornsby Shire Council's councillors you can find them at any one of their Councillor Pop Up sessions.
