Queensland Government Directions Report 2018

As stated by the Queensland Government Directions Report 2018 ‘Queensland is a major under-performer in resource recovery by both national and international standards and is the recipient of the largest quantities of interstate waste’. Annual data reported to the Queensland Government between the 2007–08 and 2015–16 financial years demonstrates that Queensland’s recovery rate has remained virtually unchanged over this time and Queensland continues to have one of the lowest recycling rates of all jurisdictions. Queensland’s commitment to introducing the waste levy along with the Resource Recovery Industry Development Program will see the state improve significantly in waste reduction and improved recycling creating a more circular economy.
