Purposely Greener Infrastructure
The Victorian Government is committed to optimising the use of recycled and reused Victorian materials across all rail and road construction through the Ecologiq program and the Recycled First policy. Victoria’s Big Build is delivering 120 projects and provides a crucial opportunity to drive significant change in the reuse of waste material. The Ecologiq program was created to fulfil this aim as an initiative of the Big Build and is working across government to optimise the use of recycled and reused materials in the construction and maintenance of infrastructure assets.
