Regional strategies

Regional strategies

The Goulburn Valley Waste and Resource Recovery Group (GVWRRG) develops and maintains a strategy for solid waste management. A number of strategic priorities were determined including:

  • Promote sharing of information and resources between member councils, the group and external bodies
  • Complement member councils in their introduction of the principles of best value and best practice waste management
  • Further promotion and introduction of both state and locally developed litter and resource efficiency campaigns

About the group

Campaspe Shire Council works closely with the Goulburn Valley Waste and Resource Recovery Group (GVWRRG) to maximise recovery of resources and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
