Rubbish collection Brisbane – beware unscrupulous operators!

Like any industry – the waste industry has plenty of unscrupulous operators (and they do not all look like Tony Soprano) and the are best avoided. The Sydney Morning Herald reported on a Queensland Government crackdown on unlicensed operators in early 2017. We quote from the article below:


“Authorities have cracked down on rogue waste management operators in Queensland, including the unlicensed transport of asbestos, chemicals and waste oil.”


“A special compliance operation – named Operation TORA – targeted unlicensed waste management operators across Queensland.”


“So far, the operation has led to 54 enforcement actions against 46 unlicensed operators.”


“While most businesses do the right thing, it’s important to have good compliance programs to ensure there is a level playing field and appropriate environmental protection,” Dr Miles said.


“Rogue operators who seek to avoid licensing and regulated requirements aren’t engaged in fair competition with other employers and they’re putting the community at risk.”


“This can have a serious consequence, for example, if an operator doesn’t store or dispose of regulated waste with the proper controls in place it could lead to spills or leakage resulting in serious damage to our environment.”
