Transforming recycling in Victoria
The Victorian Government today released 'Recycling Victoria - a 10 year circular economy policy'. The $300 million plan aim to fundamentally transform our recycling sector, reduce waste, create thousands of jobs and set Victoria up for a more sustainable future. Lily D'Ambrosio, Minster for Energy, Environment and Climate Change says: "Under this plan, we’ll overhaul our household recycling services, introducing a four-bin system and a container deposit scheme to improve the value captured from the materials we recycle. We’ll also introduce new legislation and establish a waste authority to ensure greater accountability and transparency, and improve services. We’ll continue to take a zero-tolerance approach to waste crime."
