For councils

Councils and Alpine Resorts Victoria have a vital role in the procurement and contract management of waste and recycling services, and in data collection and reporting.

New services for more and better recycling

Recycling Victoria will work closely with councils and Alpine Resorts Victoria to achieve improved services, resource recovery, recycling and data reporting.

Recycling Victoria will also help councils and Alpine Resorts Victoria with strategic procurement of waste and recycling contracts.

Councils and Alpine Resorts Victoria are key to the successful transition to Victoria’s four-stream household waste and recycling service and to enabling an accessible container deposit scheme.

Strategic procurement

Several councils and Alpine Resorts Victoria work together to procure waste and recycling services for collection, transport, processing or disposal of commingled recycling, glass, food organics and garden organics, and general waste.

Resource Recovery Collective – Hume

Ten councils and 2 Alpine Resorts in the Hume region have partnered for a collaborative procurement for waste and recycling services.

Gippswide Kerbside – Gippsland

Six Gippsland councils – Bass Coast, Baw Baw, East Gippsland, Latrobe City, South Gippsland, and Wellington – issued 4 competitive tenders to revamp the collection, transport, processing, and recycling of kerbside waste. These tenders are now closed and are being processed.

These projects will enable the region's waste management and resource recovery sector to transition toward a low carbon, circular economy and be best placed to leverage market efficiencies, and economic development opportunities for positive environmental outcomes.
