Waste Tracker for producers
From 1 July, producers of reportable priority waste must use Waste Tracker.
From 1 July 2021, producers of reportable priority waste must use EPA’s new waste tracking system – Waste Tracker. Waste Tracker replaces EPA’s former electronic waste Transport certificate system.
Reportable priority waste producers must arrange for their waste to be transported and deposited legally. Waste Tracker allows producers and EPA to track the delivery status of waste every time it changes hands.
Before you submit a waste record, you need to have arranged transport and receipt of your waste with your providers.
Waste Tracker is available on EPA’s new portal. You will need new login details to start using Waste Tracker. Login details for the electronic Waste Transport Certificate system won’t work for the new portal.

Waste records contain details about the waste, collection and drop off. Users must create waste records in the Portal - not the Waste Tracker mobile app. Once created, producers can:

Producers must give the following waste information for each waste record:
To choose your preferred Victorian transporter, a dropdown list will appear of those Victorian transporters who can transport the waste code specified.
Victorian sites authorised to receive the waste specified in the waste record will also be available to choose. If your transporter or receiver isn’t there, check that they are authorised to receive your waste type.
Producers can use accredited consigners to act on their behalf. Producers are still accountable for the information they give. When using accredited consigners, producers can still see the waste record under their account.
An accredited consigner can help a producer to:
Producers can also authorise a transporter to enter information on their behalf. Producers must get transporters to confirm transport of the waste and the receipt from the system. The transporter can email you the record.
If you perform multiple roles, you must perform actions separately in Waste Tracker.
For example, if you are both a producer and a transporter you must go through both steps in the process. This means you would create the waste record and then assign you as the transporter. You will then need to assign the driver.
