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?
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.
