Waste Authority Transition

The Circular Economy (Waste Reduction and Recycling) Bill 2021 was introduced to Parliament on Wednesday, 27 October 2021. The Bill provides for stronger regulation of the state’s waste and recycling sector for more and better recycling, less waste and landfill.

The Bill provides the foundation for Victoria’s transition to a sustainable and thriving circular economy, including enabling laws for the new container deposit scheme and new state-wide four-stream household waste and recycling system.

Both systems will significantly increase recycling of discarded, but valuable, materials that would otherwise end up in landfill.

The Bill will see the establishment on 1 July 2022 of Recycling Victoria, a dedicated government business unit to oversee and provide strategic leadership for the waste and recycling sector.

Recycling Victoria will deliver statewide stewardship, planning, regulatory and market oversight functions, and have a strong regional focus.

The Bill and Recycling Victoria are key commitments of the Victorian Government’s circular economy plan, Recycling Victoria: a new economy, to reduce waste and landfill, and provide for more and better recycling and a sustainable and thriving circular economy.

The Victorian Government’s circular economy plan is being delivered in partnership with Sustainability Victoria, the Environment Protection Authority, Major Transport Infrastructure Authority and waste and resource recovery groups.

WRRG and relevant Sustainability Victoria staff employed as at 30 June 2022 will be able to transition to the new authority from 1 July 2022.
