Blue Environment, Environ and Randell Environmental Consulting prepared for Department of the Environment
About the report
The Hazardous Waste Section commissioned Blue Environment, Environ and Randell Environmental Consulting to produce an improved national data set about hazardous waste in Australia. This data was to be reported to the Secretariat for the Basel Convention as part of our annual reporting obligations (for the 2012 calendar year reporting period), as well as being published on the Department’s website. As well as the data on hazardous wastes in Australia (see the Excel file below), the project produced an improved mechanism for compiling standardised hazardous waste data from the states and territories that aligns with both the 75; categories in the Movement of Controlled Waste National Environmental Protection Measure and the Y-codes used by the Basel Convention. The project report documents provide details on this new data mechanism and how it has been applied to produce the new data.
