The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.

Landfill waste levy

The Queensland Government introduced a levy on waste going to landfill from 1 July 2019.

Consider how your business can reduce, separate and recycle waste, to reduce the cost of sending waste to landfill.

Speak with your waste service provider to find out more about any changes to your waste collection services, including what recycling options are available.

Waste service providers are encouraged to talk with landfill operators about the levy and business operations.
