The Victorian auditor-general’s report follows a statewide crisis earlier this year, when a major recycling processor was shut down, forcing dozens of councils to send their recyclable material to landfill.

The report also follows a recent announcement by the Malaysian government that it would follow China’s lead, by turning away Australia’s low-quality recycling waste.

Until this large state wide problem is solved, landfilling will continue to happen and Biogone offers one of the few solutions left.
