Review of the waste levy

Closed 15 Jul 2020

Opened 20 Feb 2020


The action plan for the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 includes a State Government commitment to review the scope and application of the levy to ensure that it meets the objectives of the strategy, and to establish a schedule of future levy rates. 

This paper seeks the input of key waste stakeholders as part of the evidence to inform the review. The issues canvassed by the paper include: 

  • waste levy rates, including a future schedule of rates
  • the geographical area of the waste levy, and whether it should be expanded
  • applying the waste levy to other waste management methods, such as energy recovery from waste.

Following this consultation and the review of the submissions, recommendations relating to the scope and application of the waste levy will be prepared. Further consultation may also be required if the review recommends significant changes to the levy.
