It will mean more local recycling, more jobs and less waste going to landfill.  

We will invest $49.5 million to strengthen Victoria’s waste and recycling industry and infrastructure, to process more materials locally. This investment includes $28 million in funding for businesses to invest in infrastructure through Recycling Victoria Infrastructure fund grants.   

We will invest $30.5 million to support local, and attract new, manufacturers make new products using recycled materials, through the Recycling Victoria Recycling Markets Acceleration package.  

There will be $10 million in funding to help businesses improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and increase recycling.  

A new $7 million Business Innovation Centre will be established to bring together industry, universities and councils to develop new technologies and collaborate on creative solutions to waste challenges.
