Waste Management – to deliver efficient and cost effective solid waste services to customers while safeguarding public health, taking into account cultural issues and minimising adverse effects on the environment.

Waste Minimisation – to promote waste reduction towards zero waste through education, development and implementation of recycling, reuse and recovery methods.
