Waste Levy

The Green Industry Fund is made up primarily of 50% of the levy paid by waste depot licence holders under the Environment Protection Act 1993.

The levy is collected by the Environment Protection Authority, and a portion is transferred to the Green Industries Fund, which Green Industries SA draws on to achieve its objectives.

The solid waste levy is as follows:


From July 1, 2020
Metro $143/tonne
Non-metro $71.50/tonne
