Waste levy to go
The Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils has welcomed the state government’s plan to abolish the waste levy imposed on asbestos as a key step in the fight against illegal dumping.
WSROC president Tony Hadchiti said the waste levy meant that many homeowners, small businesses and unscrupulous tradespeople were deterred from disposing of asbestos through safe and proper channels because of the additional cost.
“While the idea of a levy is not bad, in practice it has seen a large increase in the amount of illegal dumping we see in our bushland and even on our suburban and city streets,” Cr Hadchiti said.
“This is particularly serious problem in western Sydney where some of our post-war suburbs are built almost entirely of fibro.
“Home renovators and small builders, many of whom are relatively new to Australia, are unaware of the serious health impacts associated with asbestos and see the waste levy as an unnecessary financial burden.”
