Welcome to Norhire

Queensland Government Waste Levy.

On the 21st March 2019 the Queensland Waste Reduction and Recycling (Waste Levy) Amendment Regulation 2019 was approved by State Parliament, paving the way for the re-introduction of a waste levy in Queensland. The Waste Levy came into effect from 1st July 2019 and is currently set at $85 per tonne plus GST on everything disposed of at landfill. This Levy is now a significant component of skip bin prices. All skip bin prices displayed on this site include the Waste Levy.

Recycling and Reduction Process

The introduction of the Queensland Waste Levy in 2019 and the consequent increase in landfill charges, has seen a scramble by all participants in the waste process to avoid paying the Levy, by either producing less waste, or recycling as much as possible, of the waste that is produced.

 

Materials which are currently suitable for reduction and recycling include all sorts of metals, clean un-contaminated vegetation, clean, vegetation and rubbish free soil from excavations and depending on the availability of a market, clean concrete which can be crushed and recycled.

 

At the moment about half of the material we collect is diverted away from landfill. Much of this is achieved relatively easily by customers simply hiring skips for specific materials such as vegetation, metal, clean concrete or clean fill. Mixed waste loads however present more of a problem; they have to be sorted, which is a time consuming and costly process.

 

Eventually it should be possible for us to divert as much as 85-90% of the material we collect away from landfill. The rate of progress towards this target is entirely dependent on the relative economics of the reduction and recycling process when compared with the cost of waste disposal at landfill sites.
