COAG waste export ban: Have your say!

Commonwealth, State and Territory Environment Ministers have agreed that the export of waste paper, plastic, glass and tyres that have not been processed into value-added materials should be banned. The ban is proposed to commence 1 July 2020 with a phased approach:

  • All waste glass by July 2020

  • Mixed waste plastics by July 2021

  • All whole tyres including baled tyres by December 2021

  • Single resin/polymer plastics that have not been re-processed; mixed paper and cardboard and baled paper and cardboard by July 2022

Refer to the Department of Environment & Energy's Discussion Paper detailing a series of questions to guide the consultation process.

Submissions are due 3 December 2019.
