Waste Action Plan

​​​​​​Draft Waste Action Pla​​n​​

The draft Waste Action Plan was released in 2019 and provided a framework for the discussion with Local Government, business and the community on the best way to address our waste and resource recovery challenges. It identified a number of key actions the Tasmanian Government would take, including the Government’s commitment to establish a legislated statewide landfill levy, which will replace the current voluntary regional waste levies, and to introduce a Container Refund Scheme (CRS) in Tasmania.​​
