Welcome to the website of the Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Group (LMWRRG).
The LMWRRG is one of 7 Waste and Resource Recovery Group that cover regional Victoria that links state, local governments, community and industry.
We have 8 member councils: City of Greater Bendigo, Buloke, Gannawarra, Loddon, Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander Shire Councils, Mildura and Swan Hill Rural City Councils.
The LMWWRG is responsible for facilitating a coordinated approach to the planning and delivery of infrastructure and services for all waste streams, municipal solid waste (MSW), commercial and industrial waste (C&I) and construction and demolition waste (C&D).
Our key functions also include facilitating the procurement of waste and resource recovery infrastructure and services, to educate businesses and communities to reduce waste going to landfill and to integrate regional and local knowledge into State-wide waste strategies.
This is the corporate site for the LMWRRG where you can keep up to date on the strategic plans, reports, press releases, newsletters and other pieces of work released by the Group.

Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan Public Consultation has now closed
A major focus for the Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Group over the next 5 months is the development of a Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan (regional implementation plan).
The regional implementation plan is part of the Victorian Waste and Resource Recovery Planning Framework aimed at ensuring waste and resource recovery infrastructure and services are strategically planned for Victoria into the future.
The objective of the regional implementation plan is to set out how the waste and resource recovery infrastructure needs of the Loddon Mallee region will be met over at least a 10 year period, while minimising possible environmental and public health impacts.
The regional implementation plan aims to:
- Identify potential landfill expansions, new infrastructure or infrastructure improvements and gaps in services
- Identify opportunities to increase resource recovery (recycling)
Once completed the regional implementation plan will serve the following uses:
- Guide State investment in waste and resource recovery infrastructure
- Guide approvals for new waste and resource recovery infrastructure
- Provide links to the planning system that must be used when making planning decisions
