Port Phillip City Council Says...

Target not achieved for 2019/20 due to the Victorian recycling crises that accrued in 2019, with the collapse of SKM Recycling. Councils kerbside recycling collected materials were diverted to landfill for a period of 4 months. In order to respond to the decreased result in waste management through the implementation of the Don't Waste It! - Waste Management Strategy 2018-28 providing the blueprint for how Council and community work together to create a more sustainable future for Port Phillip through the way we manage our waste, recyclables and organics.
