Victorian standards on bin auditing and shared approach to engagement and messaging to the community

Victorian households and businesses generate over 11 million tonnes of waste each year with about 70% of that diverted away from landfill (approximately 7.7 million tonnes). The success of diversion away from landfill, and what can ultimately be recycled, is largely dependent on how we decide to generate and dispose of waste. Bin audits are a standard practice that enables efficient assessment of how we are going with kerbside recycling. We all need to engage with waste disposal appropriately and put the right thing in the right bin, however we don’t always get it right.
