Victorian Waste Education Strategy
About the strategy
The strategy provides a consistent and coordinated approach to waste and resource recovery education. It supports best practice programs so that Victorians:
- are well informed and taking practical action to reduce waste, minimise its environmental impact and maximise its value
- understand the importance of effective waste management and recovery of valuable resources.
Projects to realise strategic directions
There are 6 strategic directions to guide waste and resource recovery education over the next 10 years (2016 to 2026). A number of SV-led projects are being delivered to realise these:
Waste Education Grants
The Waste Education Grants include three separate streams of funding.
- Improving Resource Recovery grants
This program will support local governments to deliver waste education programs targeting contamination and / resource recovery in kerbside services.
- Love Food Hate Waste Local Engagement Support Grants
Love Food Hate Waste Local Engagement Support grants program will support delivery of food waste avoidance activities, providing an opportunity for SV to support localised implementation of its successful Love Food, Hate Waste statewide education campaign.
- Litter and Illegal Dumping grants
The Litter and Illegal Dumping grants program will support delivery of the Victorian Litter Plan and tackle Victoria’s key statewide litter issues (Strategic Direction 4 of the Strategy).
For more information on this funding see Waste Education Grants
The education strategy will be delivered by the waste and resource recovery portfolio over the next five years with Sustainability Victoria leading the delivery and coordination of this work.
