Waste Tracker is the system to track reportable priority waste. This system replaces waste transport certificates.

Waste Tracker allows EPA to see the handling of waste around the state in real time. This information will allow EPA to see any unusual activity and help our compliance work.

Who needs to use Waste Tracker

Under the new laws , anyone who handles Reportable Priority Waste must let EPA know every time it changes hands. Producers, accredited consigners, transporters, drivers and receivers of reportable priority waste must use Waste Tracker to complete transactions.

Changes came into effect on 1 July 2021. You can start using Waste Tracker now.

Waste Tracker replaces the Waste Transport Certificates system

Waste Tracker has replaced the electronic Waste Transport Certificate system. The Waste Tracker Certificate system closed on Friday 16 July 2021. All waste transport certificates must be receipted immediately. EPA will take enforcement action for any outstanding certificates.

Waste Tracker is only a waste tracking system. It doesn’t replace commercial transaction records, logistics or inventory management systems.
