Bass Coast Shire residents best recyclers in Victoria says sustainability report
Bass Coast Shire residents are the best recyclers in the state, according to a recent Sustainability Victoria report.
The latest Local Government Waste Services Report shows that Victoria produced a record breaking 2.37 million tonnes of waste in 2019-20, an 8.1 per cent increase on the previous year. While Victorians generated more household waste than ever before, 45 percent of that waste was diverted from landfill through recycling and organics collections.
In Bass Coast, 75.8 percent of kerbside waste was diverted from landfill, the best result of any Victorian council area

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan said, "This is the third year in a row that Bass Coast has held the number one spot, clearly demonstrating our community's determination to keep waste out of landfill."
"The Bass Coast community deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated for their brilliant recycling efforts. Here in Bass Coast, we are committed to living in harmony with our environment while we prepare for future challenges and changes. We declared a climate emergency back in 2019 and we're proud to be leading the way in recycling and resource recovery," Cr Whelan concluded.
