Waste Action Plan

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The draft Waste Action Plan provides a framework for discussion with Local Government, business and the community on the best way to address the waste and resource recovery challenges that face Tasmania. It identifies the actions the Tasmanian Government will take to tackle our waste and recycling problems, in particular the Government’s commitment to establish a legislated statewide waste levy, which will replace the current voluntary regional waste levies, and to introduce a Container Refund Scheme (CRS) in​​ Tasmania​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​.​
