Supporting councils to plan introduction of four bin system

We have worked with all metropolitan councils to ensure they successfully registered their intent to develop a plan to transition to the new Recycling Victoria four bin system, which includes a bin for food and green waste and a new bin or service for glass only.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) required councils to register their intent by the end of July to signal their willingness to develop a transition plan and be eligible for funding to implement the plan.

MWRRG co-ordinated and facilitated workshops, interpreted requirements for councils and provided support for the development of the transition plans.

The transition plans require councils to describe their current service model and the actions needed to implement the four bin or equivalent access service models. The plans will help DELWP to develop a comprehensive statewide transition plan.
