Each year, EPA reports on the performance of local government kerbside recycling services in Victoria.
This is done under clause 16 of the Waste Management Policy (Used Packaging Materials).
This information is also reported by other states and territories under the National Environment Protection (Used Packaging Materials) Measure.
Victoria’s reports are based on information that Sustainability Victoria collects from Victorian local governments.
In the 2013–14 report there were:
* Some councils offer more than one type of kerbside recycling service. This table shows the predominant/default service.
** 2013–14 was the first year there were no council crate systems for kerbside recycling in Victoria.
*** Mornington Peninsula is now included in metro figures; previously it was non-metro.
* Not all councils provided information on this fee.
* Includes residential and non-residential properties serviced
For annual reporting periods prior to 2011–12, this information was published in the National Environment Protection Council’s (NEPC’s) annual reports. They are available at the NEPC’s website.
