Waste collection Adelaide 2019 requirements


With a diverse economy and business base across the Adelaide metro region, waste collection providers must meet the needs of businesses in the prominent industries such as; health care and social assistance, retail, defense manufacturing, electronics and general manufacturing.


Waste collection Port Adelaide levy information

As in other Australian states, a waste levy is imposed by the State government on disposal of waste at landfill. You can check up to date links to the relevant State information pages through our Waste Resources page in our website.


The waste levy as per the South Australia EPA is currently set at $110 per tonne on all waste disposed of at landfill in metro Adelaide as per July 2019 (and $55.00 per tonne in non metro Adelaide).  These are significant increases on recent years – and are acting as a real tax on doing business in Adelaide.


Please note – prices will increase significantly again on 1st July 2020.


The new landfill levies per tonne will be $140+GST per tonne in metro Adelaide and $70+GST per tonne outside the metro region.


A portion of the funds collected is transferred to the State Waste to Resources Fund which Government agency Zero Waste SA uses for its environmental objectives. The imposition of this levy increases the real costs of operation for businesses in Adelaide and makes recycling Adelaide even more important. You can check a recent blog we published on whether it is realistic in 2019 to get free cardboard recycling.


Recycling opportunities for business in Adelaide


As an advanced industrial economic region, you would be correct in expecting Adelaide to have advanced recycling facilities. The ResourceCo facility in Wingfield is one example of that where dry general waste can be turned into alternative fuels and hence displace carbon emissions (check out a video below on this facility).


The theory here is that carbon or methane that would otherwise be emitted by the decaying waste in landfill is now utilised for burning to create energy. We, as a society thus need to utilise less carbon based fuels to produce the energy required.
