 Waste Management

  1. Landfills

    The EPA Division is responsible for the regulation of landfill activities and undertakes enforcement action for unacceptable waste management practices.
  2. Measuring Waste Disposal and Recovery

    An important component of the effective management of waste and resource recovery opportunities in Tasmania is the capacity to measure the amounts of waste being generated and recovered.
  3. Controlled Waste

    Controlled waste is the most hazardous category of waste and requires careful management.
  4. Legislative Context - Resource Recovery & Waste

    The EPA’s responsibility for regulating the environmental impacts of waste and resource recovery related activities is clearly identified and defined by a range of statutory and non statutory instruments.
  5. Managing Organics

    There are a number of major composting facilities in Tasmania that process organic waste and are regulated by the EPA Division. These facilities treat a number of problem wastes including fish waste, whey products, sewerage sludge, biosolids and green waste.
