Across Australia and around the world, governments are grappling with how to waste less and recycle more. It's a big, complicated problem and there's no easy, quick fix.
We are transforming the state’s recycling sector into one Victorians can rely on. It will mean a cleaner, greener Victoria with better recycling, less pollution, more jobs and an even stronger economy.
Recycling Victoria is our circular economy policy – a 10-year action plan. We will invest more than $300 million to fundamentally transform our recycling sector, reduce waste, create thousands of jobs and set Victoria up for a more sustainable future.
Strengthening Victoria’s waste and recycling industry
Victoria’s recycling reforms and a national ban on exporting waste mean we must process more recycled materials locally.
