Victoria's Kerbside Waste Data

Last updated: 20 September 2022

Since 2000, we have surveyed Victorian councils about their kerbside waste and recycling services, including the tonnages, trends and diversion rates.

The portal enables you to sort by a combination of waste material, council area and year, providing a graphical presentation of location and trends.

How to refine the data


  • There are two filters on the dashboard, Region and Year – where Year refers to the start of a financial year, i.e. 2005 refers to 2005–06;
  • The map also works as a filter and you can select any of the councils displayed on the map;
  • Hovering over any of the charts or councils on the map will display details about the visuals – i.e. if you hover over any of the trend charts, data associated with a particular year will be displayed;
  • The trend charts also provide a 10 year projection of the dataset. The trend charts show a 95% confidence interval with the upper and lower forecasts levels shown;
  • You can zoom in and out of the map by clicking on the magnifying glass symbols in the map or by scrolling on your mouse wheel;
  • If you have zoomed the image – you can move the map by clicking and holding down the left mouse key and moving the image.
