A metropolitan Melbourne community that strives to be waste free

The Melbourne Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group is responsible for waste management and planning in Melbourne. We promote a hierarchy of reuse, then recycling and finally best practice management for the residual waste stream.


Find links to your local council, drop-off locations for recycling or disposal of common household items as well as more information on recycling, waste reduction and sustainable living.
