Victorian Regulation: Industrial waste duties and lawful place

You must comply with the new industrial waste duties under the Environment Protection Act 2017 (Vic) (new Act) which will apply to all waste produced from on-farm (commercial) activities. You must also comply with the General Environmental Duty.

After identifying and classifying your industrial waste, you must ensure that it is taken to a ‘lawful place’. This tool will help you decide which of six different pathways is right to establish lawful place for your waste.
