Melbourne Metro Landfill Levy increased

We’d been saying it for ages, and the state government finally agreed with us. In May 2010 they finally raised the landfill levy from $9 to $30 per tonne. It may sound like peanuts, but it makes a big difference. In the words of our erstwhile CEO: “Raising the landfill levy is the most significant policy plank required to increase recycling rates and reduce waste.” Code for nice one.
