1 July 2020 waste levy increase deferred for six months
To assist businesses in dealing with the financial impacts of COVID-19, the Queensland Government will be deferring the increase of waste levy rates originally scheduled to take effect from 1 July 2020.
A six month deferral to 1 January 2021 has been approved.
This means the levy will stay at $75 per tonne for general waste, and $105 and $155 per tonne for hazardous (regulated) wastes until 31 December 2020.
The Regulation that implements the deferral of the Queensland Waste Levy has now been published and is available here
