While based on the National Waste Policy released by the Australian Government in 2018, this state-based action plan does have some distinct elements.
Introducing a four-bin waste and recycling system for kerbside recycling, the Victorian Government intends to uniquely provide a bin just for recovering glass.
While identified as a way to increase the recovery of recyclable generally by removing glass as a potential contaminant from the co-mingled recyclables stream, there are some concerns that this approach is not going to translate nationally.
The State Government does intend to provide education and resources to support behaviour change in ensuring items end up in the right bin.
