On 30 August 2022, the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water released the Waste Export data viewer. The viewer presents data on waste exported by jurisdiction, destination, material group, and amount exported (in both tonnes and AUD). There are several pages of information within the viewer, including one focused on visually presenting data on exports of materials that are (or will be) regulated under the Recycling and Waste Reduction Act 2020.
This release is part of the Department’s Waste and Resource Recovery Data Hub (Hub) and is designed to make data more accessible for industry, governments and the public.
Other recent data releases by the Department include:
- Recycling Modernisation Fund data viewer
- Australian hazardous waste data and reporting standard 2022 edition
- Waste Exports data for January – March 2022
New data and supporting information will be gradually added to the Hub, in consultation with industry and governments.
