New Waste Levy Guidelines
The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has gazetted the Waste Levy Guidelines, containing specific legal requirements which occupiers of licensed waste facilities must meet in addition to their obligations under the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2014.
The guidelines include how waste is measured to calculate levy liability, when certain levy deductions can be claimed, and how records and reports are required to be made, kept and provided to the EPA in order for the occupier to fulfil their obligations under the Waste Regulation. Additionally, the EPA has published a series of factsheets that explain how and where the waste levy operates.
These factsheets and the Waste Levy Guidelines replaced the Waste and Environment Levy Operational Guidance Notes (2009) effective 1 November 2014.
These documents are available on the EPA’s website at: www.epa.nsw.gov.au/wr/index.htm
