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 also took this opportunity to update data and clarify particular chapters in the SWRRIP to ensure it reflected changes in policy, strategy and broader government activities.
SV consulted with key waste and resource recovery stakeholders on the draft amendments to the SWRRIP.
On 1 August 2017 SV released a consultation draft for public feedback via the Victorian Government's Online Consultation platform, Engage Victoria.
Submissions on the draft amendments closed at 5pm (AEST) Thursday 14 September 2017.
SV thanks all those that submitted feedback on the draft amendments. SV is now reviewing submissions and will publish a consultation summary report on its website describing how feedback on the consultation draft has influenced the final document. This report will be published along with the amended Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan, following gazettal by the Victorian Government.

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.
