The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation called for public comments on potential waste legislation reforms in Western Australia. 

We asked for feedback on our issues paper Waste not, want not: valuing waste as a resource.

The issues paper outlines possible reforms to support use of waste-derived materials and encourage the use of fit-for-purpose waste-derived materials and WA's move to a circular economy.

The reforms aim to provide greater certainty about when waste-derived materials will trigger licensing and levy obligations.

Your comments in response to the issues paper will help us develop a preferred legislative option for waste-derived materials.

Consultation on this issues paper is closed

The consultation period ran from Wednesday, 12 June to Wednesday, 4 September 2019 (12 weeks).
