Tonnage of trackable waste recovered
Tonnage of trackable waste recovered under treatment codes prescribed in Schedule 17 of the Environmental Protection Regulation 2019 for each period from 2016–2017; 2017–2018 and 2018–2019, by waste description and category. Treatment codes do not align with Queensland’s Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy. Assumptions have been made regarding treatment codes in relation to waste recovery. Due to the manual verification requirements associated with the receipt and processing of paper waste tracking certificates and a current processing backlog, the data used for these figures is based on an incomplete data set. Consequently, assumptions have been made to draw conclusions from the data, including weight conversion.
