The ASU welcomes the States investment of $129 million of funding, in response to the recycling crisis, to implement the 4 bin strategy across Victoria and improve recycling and waste management.

The Branch Secretary Lisa Darmanin & Lead Organiser Jane Karslake recently met with Minister Lily D’Ambrosio to learn more about the new initiatives under the ten-year plan to boost recycling and reduce waste. We are keen to see that this money is spent on local government creating new jobs and better delivering for the community.

Councils are best placed to improve waste reduction and recycling.  The ASU is interested to hear how these initiatives impact your jobs and the future role of Council in waste and recycling.

The ASU is calling all members who work in Waste and Recycling to attend a meeting to discuss the future of Local Government Waste Management and the likely outcomes on the ground.
