The recently launched 30 year Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan (state waste plan) is led by Sustainability Victoria on behalf of the Victorian Government.
The plan is the first of its kind in Australia to provide a long-term vision and roadmap to guide future planning for waste and resource recovery infrastructure in the state.
The vision of the plan is to develop an integrated statewide waste and resource recovery system that continues to provide and essential community service.
The plan is being implemented in consultation with the seven waste and resource recovery groups and other state government agencies, local government and industry.
The plan's initiatives for the next 5-10 years are illustrated in the diagram. To learn more about these, click on the links below.
If you have any questions or would like more information contact Karen Wilson, Waste & Resource Recovery Planning Manager at Karen.Wilson@sustainability.vic.gov.au
Sustainability Victoria monitors the implementation of the plan and is currently establishing indicators of effectiveness. Reports will be published shortly.
The plan was released in 2015 by the Parliamentary Secretary for the Environment, Anthony Carbines. To learn more about the plan's purpose, how it was developed via consultation and how it will be implemented see the links and documents below.
