This post is reflecting on the decision by the South Australian authorities to increase the levy on landfill – impacting on your general waste collections.


Whilst recent changes may not be as large a one off increase as that implemented recently in Queensland – the ongoing year by year increases in landfill levies – and hence general waste costs – is becoming a real drag on business.


It is vital to save as much money as possible when arranging your waste bins Adelaide services.


The article by the ABC here references the recent rise and the stated aim of the State Government to drive recycling. We also provide a link to the South Australia EPA levy data here.


To highlight the large increases in the waste levy in Adelaide and SA in general – we compare the rates from 2017 and those that will be implemented on 1 Jan 2020.


As per the EPA website:

“Waste levy rates 2016–17
The Government announced on 4 July that a levy increase will occur on 1 September 2016.

The solid waste depot levy for waste produced in metropolitan Adelaide is to be:

  • 1 July–31 August 2016: $62 per tonne
  • 1 September–30 June 2017: $76 per tonne”

“Waste levy rates 1 Jan 2020 – 30 June 2020

The solid waste depot levy for waste produced in metropolitan Adelaide is to be:

  •  $140 per tonne


What does this mean for waste bins Adelaide costs to your business?


By any measure these increases in tipping levies – represent a real impact on doing business in the Adelaide metro region – and can be viewed as a tax on business.


Unfortunately, this increase in the landfill levy will result in an increase in your waste management costs for your business.  You can expect to receive an uprate letter from your supplier over the next month or two (if you have not already received it). This price adjustment will basically be explained as passing on the levy increase.



As the levy is also going to be increased over future years, you can expect your waste bins Adelaide costs to also increase over time.
