CRS Newsletter Header

The Container Refund Scheme Bill 2021 and the Waste and Resource Recovery Bill 2021 have been passed by the Parliament. 

The Waste and Resource Recovery Bill 2021 establishes a state-wide waste levy that will encourage the diversion of materials from landfill, and drive investment into alternatives to landfill, so more materials will be recovered from the waste streams and turned into new and valuable products.  

The Container Refund Scheme Bill 2021 is another piece of legislation that will reduce litter in Tasmania by rewarding Tasmanians for directing their used drink containers into recycling, contributing to a circular economy.
