Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan (WRRIP)

A major focus for the North East Group over the next 18 months is the production of a Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan or ‘The Plan’.

The Plan is part of a State Planning Framework aimed at ensuring waste and resource recovery infrastructure and services are strategically planned for Victoria into the future.

The Plan aims to:

  • Provide strategic direction for waste infrastructure and services for the next 10 years in North East Victoria
  • Identify landfill extensions, new infrastructure or infrastructure improvements and gaps in services
  • Identify opportunities to increase resource recovery

Once complete the Plan will serve the following uses:

  • Guide State investment in infrastructure
  • Guide approvals for new waste and resource recovery infrastructure by the EPA
  • Provides links to planning system and must be used when making planning decisions

We are currently working with industry, local government and resorts to compile current information to inform The Plan. We are also asking that local government and alpine resorts consider their strategic direction for waste management including infrastructure and services requirements for the next 10 years.
