NWRIC Landfill Levies Whitepaper

NWRIC Levies Whitepaper October 2019

The NWRIC waste levies white paper reviews the current status of waste/landfill levies across Australia. It examines by jurisdiction, how much the waste/landfill levies are, what waste types are levied, where and when do they apply, how they are administered, the amount of funds raised each year and how these funds are spent.

It also analyses the impacts and benefits of these levies on waste and recycling outcomes across Australia, identifies a number of issues that need to be addressed urgently and recommends three major actions to resolve these issues, ensuring levies achieve their goal of facilitating better waste and recycling outcomes.
