The Victorian Government has appointed 25 directors to the state’s seven Waste and Resource Recovery Groups.
The directors, including nine reappointments, commenced their roles on 1 August.
- EPA VIC to extend $6.5M program to tackle local waste issues
- Victorian e-waste ban to landfill breakdown
- Building a more resilient sector: Sustainability Victoria
They bring a broad range of experience to their roles with diverse backgrounds including energy, engineering, resource efficiency, local government, infrastructure development, sustainability, waste management and environmental policy.
The appointees will aim to ensure the Groups have the skills and experience needed to deliver a safe, resilient and efficient recycling system.
Waste and Resource Recovery Groups are a part of the state government’s Recycling Industry Strategic Plan with local councils across Victoria.
Appointees have increased board representation of women, people with disabilities and Victorians from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds.
More than $100 million has been invested by the state government over the last four years to improve the Victoria’s waste and resource recovery system.
Victorian Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio congratulated the appointees and said she looks forward to working with them to strengthen the state’s waste and recycling sector.
“We’re making sure Victoria is equipped with the people and resources it needs to reduce waste and costs to households,” she said.
