Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 496 asked in the Legislative Council on 19 May 2022 by Hon Tjorn Sibma

Minister responding: Hon A. Sanderson
Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on 19 May 2022

WASTE — LANDFILL LEVY

496. Hon TJORN SIBMA to the minister representing the Minister for Environment:

I refer to the net appropriation determination table for the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation at page 705 of budget paper No 2, volume 2. Why in the midst of heightened construction activity and the generation of additional waste volumes has DWER anticipated steady annual revenues of only $83 million from the landfill levy?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following answer is provided on behalf of the Minister for Environment.

The estimated revenue from the waste levy takes into account disposal trends from the municipal, commercial, construction and demolition waste streams.
