Launched in June 2015, the Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan (SWRRIP) is led by Sustainability Victoria on behalf of the Victorian Government.
The SWRRIP 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 SWRRIP is to develop an integrated statewide waste and resource recovery system that continues to provide an essential community service.
Amendments to the SWRRIP
In 2016, SV identified the need to amend the SWRRIP to incorporate key information identified in the development of the seven Regional Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plans (Regional Implementation Plans).
These amendments will ensure statewide directions reflect regional infrastructure needs and priorities.
SV will also take the opportunity to update its data and clarify particular chapters in the SWRRIP to ensure it reflects changes in policy, strategy and broader government activities.
SV is consulting with key waste and resource recovery stakeholders on the draft amendments to the SWRRIP.
The Victorian public can comment on the amended SWRRIP through the Victorian Government's Online Consultation platform, Engage Victoria at www.engage.vic.gov.au/swrrip
Submissions are invited until 5pm Thursday 31 August 2017.

The SWRRIP is being implemented in consultation with the seven Regional Waste and Resource Recovery Groups and other state government agencies, local government and industry.
