Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group & Ors (Organic)


The Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG), on behalf of itself and a group of nine Councils in metropolitan Melbourne (the Applicants), is applying for revocation of Authorisations A91414 and A91415 and substitution of a new authorisation.

The ACCC previously granted Authorisations A91414 and A91415 to Metropolitan Waste Management Group (predecessor of MWRRG) and the Councils of Bayside City, Cardinia Shire, Casey City, Greater Dandenong, Frankston City, Glen Eira City, Kingston City, and Monash City (together, the South Eastern Organics Group) to jointly procure organic waste processing services until 10 July 2032.

The Applicants are now seeking to add Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to the South Eastern Organics Group. The Applicants do not seek to change the expiry date of the existing Authorisations.
