Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group
The Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG) is responsible for waste management and planning in Melbourne. We promote a hierarchy of reuse, then recycling and finally best practice management for the residual waste stream.
As a Victorian State Government Statutory Body we are responsible for coordinating and facilitating the delivery of waste management and resource recovery across metropolitan Melbourne. Our planning role covers all waste streams – municipal solid waste (MSW), construction and demolition waste (C&D) and commercial and industrial waste (C&I).
We work with 31 metropolitan councils to:
plan for waste management and resource recovery facilities and services across metropolitan Melbourne
facilitate joint procurement of facilities and services to provide better economic, environmental and waste management outcomes for councils
help build the capacity and knowledge of councils and their communities of world best practice waste minimisation and the opportunities and options available for improved services and infrastructure.

City of Port Phillip
The City of Port Phillip is located south of the Melbourne city centre, on the northern shore of Port Phillip Bay. One of the oldest areas of European settlement in Melbourne, Port Phillip is known and treasured by many for its urban village feel and artistic expression.
We are focused on the future and we will need to adapt to a different climate. We need to be prepared. We want to strengthen our resilience and capacity to adapt. We want to lead, to work with and empower our community to be adaptive and innovative. We recognise we can’t do this alone. It will be vital to advocate and partner with community, businesses, universities, other governments and organisations.
If we are to be a sustainable community, the efficient and effective management of waste, using the principles of the waste minimisation hierarchy, will play a vital role. Effective waste management can have a substantial impact in key areas of sustainability including; resource efficiency, greenhouse gas abatement, environmental amenity and a community’s overall quality of life. Our Toward Zero Strategy includes specific waste reduction targets for both Council and Community.
