The Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund will help strengthen the local resource recovery sector by:
- increasing resilience to changing market conditions for recycled commodities
- helping businesses prepare for a Federal Government ban on exporting recyclable materials
- maximising opportunity to build local industries and create jobs.

Recycling Modernisation Fund
The Recycling Modernisation Fund is an Australian Government initiative that will invest over $190 million to expand Australia’s capacity to sort, process and remanufacture recycled materials such as mixed plastic, paper, tyres and glass. This will assist Australia to respond to the waste export ban. This funding will be distributed by state and territory governments.
For more information, visit the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment website.
Funding allocated to Victoria from the Recycling Modernisation Fund will be delivered via the Victorian Government’s Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund (RVIF). Sustainability Victoria is currently planning how state funding can be considered for co-investment with industry and this federal funding.
