How to make this happen

How to make this happen

  1. Ban E-waste from landfill and follow the steps South Australia, the ACT and Victoria have taken to establish a dedicated e-waste recycling facility.
  2. Ensure government agencies utilise local E-waste recycling options when disposing of E-Waste, creating an instant market demand for local E-waste recycling.
  3. Mandate the use of recycled materials in road base by Main Roads Department and Local Government to deliver roads that are stronger, longer lasting and cost competitive with traditional products.
  4. Mandate recycled content for infrastructure projects establishing government as major customers to drive demand for this product.
  5. Require material collected through the WA Recycling Refund Scheme to be reprocessed here in Western Australia and expand the Recycling Refund scheme to include a broader range of recyclable packaging.
  6. Provide tax incentives for WA businesses involved
    in recycling or reprocessing industries
  7. Withhold further approvals for quarry developments or expansions where alternative materials can be sourced from recycled and reprocessed C&D waste products.
  8. Develop Extended Producer Responsibility and Product Stewardship schemes under the WA Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Act for problem waste products.
  9. Provide funding for 30 Local Repair Labs across Perth and in regional areas, and explore linking training and employment opportunities to social reinvestment programs.
  10. Provide dedicated funding from the WA Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery fund for local community groups to clean up litter, illegal dumping, and plastic pollution in rivers, streams, coastlines and bushland areas.
  11. Increase the WA Landfill Levy and phase it in to cover regional areas at a lower level.
