The Regional Waste Levy

All disposal fees that relate to residual waste going to landfill will have a Regional Waste Levy (RWL) amount applied. The RWL amount that has been agreed by the eight northern member councils is $5.00 per tonne (GST is not applicable to the amount charged). This amount has been added to the disposal fees as well as any other increases associated with the review.

 

The levy will provide an annual ongoing funding stream to enable projects that support waste minimisation and recycling programs throughout the northern region through the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group.
