Material Recovery Facilities Operators


The Circular Economy (Waste Reduction and Recycling) Act 2021 provides for the Head, Recycling Victoria to issue protocols that enable material recovery facilities (MRFs) and local governments and Alpine Resorts Victoria to access a refund from CDS Vic in relation to the suitable eligible containers they collect and manage.

The material recovery facilities protocol establishes the terms for determining the refund amount from CDS Vic between the Scheme Coordinator and MRF operators with a Recovery agreement.

The purpose of the Local government refund sharing protocol is to ensure equitable and transparent sharing of refunds among contracted parties involved in providing municipal recycling services that collect, sort and separate suitable eligible containers.
