Review of the waste levy

Closed 15 Jul 2020

Opened 20 Feb 2020


In 2020, the department called for public comments on the Review of the waste levy consultation paper.

The consultation paper sought the input of key waste stakeholders as part of the evidence to inform the review. The issues canvassed by the paper included: 

  • 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.

The consultation period ran from 20 February to 15 July 2020.
