When China stopped taking our waste, tens of thousands of tonnes of recycling was dumped in landfill because we didn’t have adequate recycling system here in Victoria.

We should have a world-class recycling industry right here at home.

The Victorian Labor Government created the problem, and doesn’t have a plan to fix it.

The Greens have solutions, and we’re getting results.

In 2017, we secured a ban on single-use plastic bags. In 2020, under pressure from the Greens and our Parliamentary Inquiry, the government finally announced a 10 cent refund on bottles and cans and a separate bin for glass recycling for all houses in Victoria.

But there’s still more to do to fix Victoria’s waste crisis.

Please sign the petition to show your support for the Greens plan to:

  1. Build a plastic recycling plant here in Victoria
  2. Ban unnecessary single-use plastics, like plastic on fruit and veggies
  3. Allow everyone to put their food scraps in their green bins, so they’re turned into compost
  4. Make roads and playgrounds from recycled materials
  5. Stop toxic waste incinerators, which harm our health and create pollution
