The 10-year Victorian Waste Education Strategy was released on 26 August 2016. The strategy is a key priority of delivering the 30-year Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan.
The 2019 Victorian Waste Education Conference for educators delivering waste/recycling and litter programs, was held in Geelong on 15 and 16 October.
About the strategy
The strategy provides a consistent and coordinated approach to waste and resource recovery education. It supports best practice programs so that Victorians:
- are well informed and taking practical action to reduce waste, minimise its environmental impact and maximise its value
- understand the importance of effective waste management and recovery of valuable resources.
