Landfill Levy

As of 1 July 2022 a Tasmanian State Government Landfill Levy will apply to all waste to landfill in Tasmania.

The Government has set the levy at $20 per tonne. Landfill operators are required to charge the Levy to landfill users and provide the funds collected to the Government.

In Hobart this will occur at the weighbridge at McRobies Gully Waste Management Centre and customers will notice an increase in landfill fees, in particular:

  • an additional $20 per tonne on the standard charge for general mixed waste
  • an additional $2 charge on the minimum light vehicle general mixed waste charge.

Some waste categories will not be subject to the Levy including green waste and recyclable materials such as steel, cardboard and glass containers. For these products the City will not be applying any levy component.

The levy will be used to fund recycling and resource recovery infrastructure and programs across Tasmania, and lead to more resource recovery and less landfill.

To minimise the impact of the levy, separate your waste, use the various recycling and re-use avenues available such as your kerbside recycling and FOGO, the recycling facilities at the waste transfer station, and re-usable and recyclable items accepted by the Tip Shop.

For more information on the Levy, please visit the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania website.

Good Neighbour Agreement

The City and the South Hobart Community have developed a Good Neighbour Agreement for the McRobies Gully Waste Management Centre.

The Agreement aims to replicate the process of being good residential neighbours, including things like keeping noise down, having properties looking neat and tidy, good open and honest communication, and looking out for each other. The City has held meetings, presented at public forums, and attended South Hobart events to field any questions the community has about the Waste Management Centre.
