The Government has announced a consultation on changes to the waste disposal levy. The proposals would see the rate of the levy increase to $50-$60 a tonne by 2023 for waste to class 1 landfills. The levy would also be extended to cover classes 2-4 landfills at lower rates of $10-$20 a tonne. Eunomia NZ Director Duncan Wilson was interviewed on Radio NZ’s nine to noon programme about the Governments proposed changes to the waste disposal levy.
