Waste disposal Melbourne – planning for the future


The Victorian Government has produced a long term strategy for waste disposal Melbourne and increasing recycling – The Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Strategic Plan. Key quotes from the doc are as below:


“Melbourne’s population is growing and so is its waste. Over 10 million tonnes of unwanted materials were thrown out by Victorians in 2006-07. The Towards Zero Waste Strategy sets the direction and vision for a more sustainable Victoria. It seeks to minimise the amount of waste that Victorians generate and maximise opportunities for recovering materials. Towards Zero Waste (TZW) established goals for Victoria’s solid waste management and resource recovery. Its targets, to 2014, cover all types of solid waste from all sectors.”

“The strategy is guided by three main objectives:
 – to generate less waste;
 – to increase the amount of materials for recycling
and reprocessing;
 – to reduce damage to our environment caused by waste.”


“Melbourne’s population is expected to increase significantly during the life of the Strategic Plan, as is its waste. Assuming a continuation of trends expected under TZW, projections suggest that compared to 2006-07, a further 30 per cent more waste will be generated in 2030, and an additional 3.2 million tonnes will need to be recovered for reprocessing.”
