04. Recycling and resource recovery infrastructure outcomes
In recent years, the lack of an overarching policy framework and shared objectives for the Victorian recycling and resource recovery sector has been a barrier.
However, considerable work is underway across the Victorian Government to improve recycling and resource recovery and increase resilience.
In our Evidence Base Report, we proposed outcomes for the sector. We asked for feedback so we could refine these outcomes and develop our final advice to government.
Based on feedback from stakeholders, we have developed outcomes that reflect the principles of a circular economy, emphasise the waste hierarchy and meet the requirements outlined in the terms of reference for this advice. Figure 1 illustrates these proposed outcomes.
The recommendations in this report represent the key actions we think are necessary to achieve these outcomes.
