Mitchell 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.

GVWRRG is the link between state, local governments, community and industry and is responsible for facilitating a coordinated approach to the planning and delivery of infrastructure and services for all waste streams including  municipal solid waste (MSW), commercial and industrial waste (C& I) and construction and demolition waste (C&D).

The organisation has a central office located at Shepparton to service the Goulburn Valley waste and resource recovery region. The region extends from the Victoria/New South Wales border through to the outer suburbs of Melbourne and encompasses the following municipalities:

  • Campaspe Shire Council
  • Greater Shepparton City Council
  • Mitchell Shire Council
  • Moira Shire Council
  • Murrindindi Shire Council
