The Victorian government has also committed to banning e-waste from landfill and banning single use, lightweight plastic shopping bags in 2019.
“We’re delivering a new plan for the future of recycling in Victoria – to reduce waste and costs to households, and build a more resilient recycling sector in Victoria,’’ Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp said.
