IPART is seeking feedback on the review of NSW local council domestic waste management service charges.

What’s this about?

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) is seeking feedback on its recently released discussion paper on domestic waste management charges levied by local councils. 

IPART previously decided not to regulate waste charges. They now need to consider whether this is the right approach going forward.

The discussion paper asks for feedback on any issues with the prices charged for waste management services, and, if so, how IPART should respond.

IPART are particularly interested in whether charges reflect the reasonable and efficient costs of providing waste services, while meeting environmental and legislative requirements. 

The feedback will also help identify any opportunities for greater transparency for customers and councils.
