Market sounding for waste and resource recovery infrastructure gets underway

The waste and resource recovery regions of the Goulburn Valley, Loddon Mallee and North East have entered a combined market sounding process to engage with industry and local government in planning for waste and resource recovery infrastructure. The market sounding process is a core part of developing the three group’s draft Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plans (Implementation plans). The market sounding process plays a specific role in the development of the schedule of waste and resource recovery infrastructure for the regions.  The schedule will list existing and planned infrastructure, including both landfills and resource recovery facilities.The purpose of scheduling is to:

  • enable integrated planning for waste management across the region
  • support infrastructure decisions that prioritise resource recovery over landfill (where viable).

The market sounding process will commence in mid-October and will be advertised broadly throughout all the regions.  To register your initial interest email: with your name, email address and postal address so as to receive further information as it is released.
