Waste reform consultation
Public consultation on the draft Environment Protection (Waste Reform) Bill 2016 concluded last month bringing to a close a series of forums over a three month period that took place in metropolitan Adelaide and six regional areas.
More than 100 people took part in these sessions with most attendees coming from local government with KESAB representatives also participating.
EPA officers also attended industry events such as the KESAB awards and the Local Government Association (LGA) Annual General Meeting to discuss the Bill and broader waste reforms.
Feedback has validated that illegal dumping continues to be an issue of significant concern and support for improved powers to more effectively tackle the issue.
A summary report of issues raised during the consultation period will be prepared and shared with those who participated in the consultation with most submissions to be placed on the EPA website next year.
