Queensland waste levy reimbursement program released
A new program that streamlines the way to receive the benefit of approved exemptions from the waste levy is now available.
The Charitable Recyclers Reimbursement Program (the Program) aims to ensure those charitable recyclers who hold an approved exemption, but have yet been able to use it, can receive its intended benefits.
Using a claim-based model, the Program provides a more direct and streamlined process that will reimburse the calculated levy liability on waste from unusable donations disposed to landfill.
Applicants and interested parties can find more information on the Program, as well as program guidelines, applicant requirements and a link to the application portal, on the Queensland Government website.
Applicants are encouraged to read the program guidelines in full before applying.
The Program will be delivered in two rounds. Round 1 is for the reimbursement of eligible levy charges incurred from 1 July 2019 to 30 September 2020, with applications to be submitted through the SmartyGrants portal by 5pm on 7 December 2020.
The Department of Environment and Science and Charitable Recycling Australia are working together to deliver the Program.
An information session on the Program’s design and application requirements is available should you need. If you would like to register your interest for an information session or require any further information, please contact the Office of Resource Recovery on (07) 3330 5164 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
