THE Lod­don Mallee Waste and Re­source Re­cov­ery Group (LMWRRG) has an­nounced one new direc­tor and a reap­point­ment.

LMWRRG plays a key role in im­ple­ment­ing the gov­ern­ment’s Re­cy­cling In­dus­try Strate­gic Plan by work­ing closely with coun­cils in their re­spec­tive re­gions to make pol­icy a re­al­ity on the ground. The new ap­pointees are:

■ Natalie Mc­Carthy Ms Mc­Carthy has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in the man­u­fac­tur­ing and min­ing in­dus­try as a qual­i­fied en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer. Ms Mc­Carthy is the founder and man­ager of Hub­berts of Sut­ton Grange and is cur­rently the pres­i­dent of Harcourt Pre-School Com­mit­tee of Man­age­ment.

■ Julie Green In ad­di­tion to be­ing a former direc­tor of the LMWRRG board, Ms Green has ex­pe­ri­ence as the founder and owner of Julie Green Con­sult­ing. Ms Green is also the chair of Mal­don Hos­pi­tal’s Clin­i­cal Care Com­mit­tee, chair of The In­no­va­tive Co­op­er­a­tive Ltd and chair of Green­ing Aus­tralia’s Fi­nance, Risk Man­age­ment and Au­dit Com­mit­tee.

The two di­rec­tors will re­main in their po­si­tions un­til April 30, 2022.

In July the Vic­to­rian gov­ern­ment an­nounced the Re­cy­cling In­dus­try Strate­gic Plan, a blue­print for a safe, re­silient and ef­fi­cient re­cy­cling sys­tem in the medium to long term.

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.
