The Waste Regulation Team

The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Act 2016 (the Act) and Waste Management and Resource Recovery Regulation 2017 (the Regulation) creates a regulatory environment that aims to promote and reward responsible practices in waste management and resource recovery. Additionally, it supports the Government’s objective to reduce waste and minimise the volume of material going to landfill. The Waste Regulation Team is responsible for implementing and administering the Act and Regulation.

There are several programs operating under the Act and Regulation, including the ACT Container Deposit Scheme (CDS), regulation of all waste facilities and transporters of waste, and mandatory reporting of all waste activities conducted in the ACT.  Additionally, new ICT systems are being developed to support ongoing efficient and effective administration of the Act and Regulation.
