State Government Waste Levy

State Government Waste Levy

The waste levy will apply to most waste going into a landfill and all major waste streams including Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)*, Commercial and Industrial (C&I), Construction and Demolition (C&D) and regulated waste that originates from a defined levy zone or disposed into landfill within a levy zone.
*While the levy does apply to MSW, there will be a Government rebate so there will be no direct cost for kerbside bin collections or self-haul loads taken into waste facilities.

COST

Waste Classification Levy Rate (per tonne)
