Managing waste

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

Under the 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.

Permissions

To perform prescribed activities that may cause harm, you must have a permission, such as a licence, permit or registration.

Here are some resources to help you to apply for a permission.

Resources for applying for a permission

If you need advice on which permission you need for your activity, visit Permissions proposal pathway guideline and submit a Permission pathway form via email to permissions@epa.vic.gov.au
