Feedback invited: Queensland’s new waste strategy

June 12, 2018

The Queensland Government is developing a new resource recovery and waste management strategy.

This strategy will be underpinned by a waste disposal levy and will enable a diverse and sustainable waste management industry. The strategy aims to deliver long-term value to the environment, new jobs for communities and confidence by the private sector to invest in Queensland.

Development of the waste strategy and design of the levy will be informed by feedback and advice from the Recycling and Waste Management Stakeholder Advisory Group. It will also be informed by public consultation and reports that provide additional information on key areas, such as infrastructure and policy options.

Your feedback into the development of the waste strategy and levy will help to identify the opportunities and challenges that will enable the transformation and growth of Queensland’s recycling and waste management industry.

More information about the waste strategy and levy is available in the Transforming Queensland’s Recycling and Waste Industry Directions Paper.

Submissions are due by 5pm, Friday 29 June 2018.
