The Victorian Litter Action Alliance (VLAA) is the peak body for litter management and prevention in Victoria. Established in 2000, VLAA provides a coordinated approach to preventing litter across state and local government, industry and community sectors.
VLAA provides a state-wide forum for:
- Fostering input and communicating state-wide activities
- Identifying priorities
- Coordinating action plans to identify opportunities for leveraging greater outcomes from programs and activities
- Promoting joint activities
- Capability building through sharing information, experiences and delivery of training
- Monitoring trends in littering
- Identifying and reacting to new and emerging litter issues
VLAA has an annual business plan which is developed, funded and delivered by the Funding Partners of the VLAA Reference Group.
To harness the combined efforts of state and local government, industry and community sectors in a community of practice, which collaborates with others, to remove and prevent litter in the Victorian environment.
That government, industry and community sectors are working collaboratively to remove and prevent litter from entering our environment to improve liveability.
The Alliance uses current data, both qualitative and quantitative, to decide our priorities for our annual business plan. A key document in informing our 2016/17 priorities, below, is Victoria's Litter Report Card, developed by Sustainability Victoria:
