As per clause 11 (6) o f the IWMP, Victorias policy on acceptance of controlled waste from other States and Territories into Victoria has been consistently one of facilitating those transactions that result in appropriate reuse and recycling practices but rejecting those that result in disposal to either landfill or the sewer system. Exceptions exist to these rules, but these are largely centred around the temporary acceptance o f waste into Victoria where the generating jurisdiction does not have the appropriate facilities to handle a particular waste stream or where the transportation of controlled waste into Victoria for temporary storage is necessary.
