Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan

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.
