You will need this permit if you intend to operate a waste collection service in areas where the local council do not provide this service. Waste includes any liquid, solid, gaseous or radioactive substance which is discharged into the environment.
Waste collection service involves the:
- collection, transport, storage, treatment, recycling or disposal of waste
- provision of receptacles for the temporary deposit of waste
- provision and management of waste facilities, machinery for the disposal of waste and processes for dealing with waste.
This permit is only needed for the collection of local government waste where local councils do not provide a similar collection service or a particular part of a district where the council does not undertake waste collection.
