The objective of the Landfill Levy Readiness Grant Scheme was to assist landfill operators and resource recovery operators meet their levy and data reporting requirements. Landfill operators and resource recovery businesses will need to collect data on waste, including (for landfills) the information required to calculate the payable levy amount. Landfill levy returns will be the mechanism through which waste data will be collected from the relevant facilities. Waste data reports from resource recovery facilities will also support the Waste and Resource Recovery Board measure the effectiveness of programs under the State Waste Strategy.
The Grant Scheme assisted with the transition to these requirements by providing a financial contribution towards the costs of modifying the systems and infrastructure of landfill and resource recovery businesses to be able to comply with the new legislative requirements contained in the Waste and Resource Recovery Act.
