The EPA regulates key aspects of waste management in
Tasmania. This includes the regulation of Tasmania’s larger waste depots;
and of controlled waste (sometimes referred to as hazardous waste). The
EPA assesses compliance with, and enforces, relevant rules and laws.
The EPA participates nationally in waste initiatives,
contributing to and adopting agreed national management approaches, and
providing a range of Tasmanian waste data to the Australian Government for
inclusion in its annual waste reporting.
