Sustainability Victoria, on behalf of the Victorian Government, invites you to participate in a workshop to understand the challenges, barriers and opportunities for increased organics recovery in Victoria. The composition of waste going to landfill is changing and more than 60% of all materials in landfill are organic waste. This represents environmental, economic and public health issues for the state and in turn an opportunity to increase organics recovery for beneficial use. The Victorian Government is taking action and has identified the Victorian Organics Strategy as a key action within "Getting Full Value, Victoria’s waste and resource recovery policy" - Action 7.2.1.

The Victorian Organics Strategy will: · Articulate a 30 year vision for organics recovery and management, outlining the challenges and steps required to recover more and better manage growing volumes of organic waste. · Establish a pathway to develop a sustainable organics waste industry over the next 10 years. · Include a five year plan for state government to work with community, industry, end markets and local government for increased investment to create value from organic waste. Join the conversation We invite participation and collaboration from community, industry, end markets, peak bodies, associations, local government and Victorian Government departments and agencies at the workshop.
