A cabinet paper has been released detailing new reporting requirements under the Waste Disposal Levy Expansion. 

Recommendations include mandatory reporting data on:

  • the spending of allocated waste levy money
  • performance in achieving waste minimisation in accordance with local council’s Waste Management and Minimisation Plan
  • performance against standards for implementation of local council’s WMMP

There will also be expanded reporting requirements for landfills other than Class 1’s under the expansion plans.
