In 2014 the Ministry for the Environment (MfE) released the Review of the effectiveness of the waste disposal levy, 2014. You can read the review here.

The levy review made a total of eleven recommendations, some recommendations being relatively minor and some being more significant.

In line with legislation, MfE will soon be undertaking work to inform the next levy review. 

With this in mind, the WasteMINZ Board discussed the need to better understand member perspectives about the levy and the previous levy review. To inform this, we sought feedback from the key contacts at each member organisation.

Each member received a questionnaire focused around some of the most substantive recommendations from the last levy review. To attached document contains a summary of the results.
