Queensland Government Waste Levy Introduction.

Bin prices will increase for bins dumped after the end of June 2019. On the 21stMarch 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 will come into force from 1st July 2019 and is initially set at $75 per tonne plus GST, effectively increasing bin prices by $82.50 per tonne of content from that date.

Recycling and Reduction Process

Our rubbish removal reduction process has developed from a desire to reduce the volume of materials going into landfill. Landfill sites are filling at an alarming rate and the only
way to reduce this is to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Rubbish removal from your site is only the first step in the waste reduction process. Depending on the contents of the bin and the location the driver will determine whether the content of the bin makes it suitable for sorting or direction away from landfill.

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 approximately 10% of our collected waste is diverted away from landfill by our reduction and recycling process. We estimate that the amount of our waste stream going to landfill sites can eventually be reduced by as much as 85-90%. Unfortunately 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. In plain speak this means, as the cost of landfill increases more material can and will be economically recycled. We are continually on the lookout for processes and alternate uses, to increase our rate of recycling and reduction.
