EPA will not be issuing new waste transport permits 

Duty holders can apply for a new waste transport permit or registration from 1 July 2021. 

  • A permit will be required when transporting waste code types B100, E100, G100 and R100.
  • All other waste transport of reportable priority waste codes will require a registration.

The registration process does not require EPA assessment, and is processed automatically within 24 hours. New applications will be for a 5-year period. Under the current legislative framework, approvals are for one year.

Vehicle permit renewals

If your active waste transport vehicle permit is due for renewal on or before 30 June 2021, you will have received your invoice in the mail to your registered address. You should have paid for your renewal on or before 30 June 2021.

Any active vehicle permit that is due for renewal from 1 July to 31 August 2021, will be subject to renewal under EPA's new environmental laws. We are finalising the renewal process for vehicle permits that are due in July 2021. Updates will be available on this page, or you can contact us.
