The state government has waived the waste levy to assist communities with the cost of waste disposal for flood-affected waste from the storms.
Dumping waste into landfill has two cost components - gate cost and waste levy. The gate cost is the charge imposed by private landfill operators to receive waste.
People who registered their names in the relief centres and were issued a 'temporary incident card' can have the waste levy waived at their local waste disposal depot.
For more information, visit the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) website or phone 8204 2004.
For information about local waste disposal phone or visit your local council website.
