Description of Conduct

On 23 August 2021, Gippsland Waste and Resource Recovery Group (GWRRG) sought authorisation on behalf of itself and 6 councils (Bass Coast Shire Council, Baw Baw Shire Council, East Gippsland Shire Council, Latrobe City Council, South Gippsland Shire Council and Wellington Shire Council) (Participating Councils) to collectively procure processing services for glass and mixed recycling.

On 23 September 2021, the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to grant authorisation and granting interim authorisation. On 6 October 2021, the ACCC revoked the interim authorisation granted on 23 September 2021 and substituted it with interim authorisation to enable GWRRG to progress the tender process, including releasing a joint request for tender.

On 20 October 2021,  the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation until 30 December 2037.
