Queensland Waste Levy

Waste related fees and charges are evolving because of the introduction of the Queensland Waste Levy from 1 July 2019. 

In order to encourage recycling and resource recovery by penalising landfilling, the Queensland Government charges Local Governments a waste levy applicable to all waste disposed of in landfill. The rate that has been presented by the Queensland Government to Council for the 2022-2023 financial year is $88 per tonne. Council must recover these charges by adding it to the fees associated with landfilling.
