Have your say on standardised recycling

July 1, 2024

The Victorian Government is proposing regulations and a service standard for household waste and recycling services.

The Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action is working with councils and Alpine Resorts Victoria to roll out Victoria’s new standardised four-stream household waste and recycling system.

Households that receive waste and recycling services from local councils and ARV will have access to separate services for:

  • general rubbish
  • mixed recycling
  • glass recycling
  • food organics and garden organics (FOGO).

The new four-stream system makes it easier for people to sort materials at home and achieves consistency across the state. It reduces risk of contamination of other recyclables from materials like glass.

Fill in the survey before 14 August to have your say.
