Sustainability Victoria (SV) is running a survey to obtain industry insights on what guidance is needed to improve resource recovery in the state.
This exercise is the first step in a SV project to develop tools and resources to support the best practice operation of resource recovery centres and transfer stations in Victoria.
This forms part of its commitment under the Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan (SWRRIP), with the aim of improved resource recovery, environmental, public health and amenity outcomes.
It is currently seeking direct feedback from those working in the waste and resource recovery industry on the types of guidance that would help optimise the performance of Victoria’s network of more than 300 resource recovery centres and transfer stations.
SV is encouraging those running waste management facilities, reprocessors, recyclers, waste transporters, designers and consultants to complete the online survey.
It has also been running several workshops across Victoria for qualitative insights.
Following a review period after Christmas, SV expects to develop the new supporting tools and information between March and June next year.
Victoria-based industry professionals wishing to provide feedback can do so through the online survey.
The closing date for survey responses is 5pm on Friday 11 December.
