Resource Recovery – Collaborative Procurement In Gippsland

Valuing waste as a resource and focusing on resource recovery is vital to sustainability and makes sense for Gippsland.

These priorities not only bring with them economic, environmental, and social benefits but are key to the region minimising waste to landfill and moving toward a low carbon, circular economy.

Gippswide Kerbside is designed to secure the region’s waste management capacity and capability into the future through region-wide collaborative procurement that delivers:

  • increased resource recovery and decreased landfill through best practice and innovation
  • cost effectiveness and economies of scale
  • emissions reductions and transition to a low carbon economy
  • regional investment in value added services and infrastructure
  • increased local employment and procurement opportunities
  • scalability providing the capacity to accept and process additional volume from other areas
  • awareness raising and engagement that enables waste minimisation within households and at kerbside
  • a move to a sustainable regional circular economy model.

With a memorandum of understanding with each Gippsland council in place, Gippswide Kerbside is progressing to market through a tender process.

There will be four separate tenders:

  1. Organics (FOGO) Processing – currently open
  2. Residual Waste Processing
  3. Glass & Mixed Recycling Processing
  4. Collection & Transport.
