The Victorian Government is developing a circular economy policy and action plan for Victoria. In a circular economy people minimise waste and make the most of resources. Shifting to a more circular economy will grow the economy, increase jobs and reduce impacts on the environment.

The circular economy policy will build on Victoria’s leading waste and resource recovery initiatives, including our response to global recycling market challenges. More than that, it will find new ways for Victorian businesses and communities to use materials more efficiently and avoid waste in all stages of making, using and disposing of the products and infrastructure we rely on every day.
