Reduce The Impact Of The Waste Levy And Help You Stay Competitive:
The Queensland government is introducing a $70 per tonne (and up to $150 per tonne for highly contaminated materials) waste levy to discourage both state and interstate companies from sending their rubbish to the state’s landfills.
The QLD waste levy, effective from March 2019, will bring Queensland into line with other states who charge waste levies for the same reason.
The QLD government hopes that the waste levy will encourage recycling and help QLD move towards a circular economy, where products would be recycled until their resources were exhausted. Proceeds from the QLD waste levy will go toward supporting local business and industry to increase their recycling efforts and also to environmental management and improvement.
Contaminated soils that fall under the category one or two classifications will incur a higher QLD waste levy of between $100 and $150 per tonne. The QLD government hopes that this increased rate will make innovative approaches including onsite treatment to contaminated soil disposal more economically viable to property owners and developers. Transferring the problem of contaminated soil and groundwater to a landfill does not provide a benefit in terms of reduction of contamination, and modern innovative treatments and remediation strategies may now be more affordable than transport and disposal of contaminated materials to landfill.
Virotec can substantially reduce your operating costs as:
we have relationships with the major landfill operators so you get the benefit of our discount rates; and
our EPA licensed mobile treatment plant can treat on site to minimise waste volumes and reduce expensive trucking trips and landfill costs.
Our experience is that your disposal waste costs can be reduced by as much as 80% to 90%, with 30% to 40% being typical.
With our 100% track record, your remediation costs will reduce.
