Use our tracker to help meet your obligations under the Environment Protection Act 2017
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.
Waste Tracker is only a waste tracking system. It does not replace commercial transaction records, logistics or inventory management systems.
Learn more about the features of EPA’s waste tracking system.
Under the Environment Protection Act 2017, 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.
EPA is making a range of changes to Waste Tracker following consultation with industry in late 2021. Planned enhancements include:
EPA will continue to make improvements to increase the performance of the system.
The project will run until March 2023. Enhancements will be regularly released, with the first release in December 2022.
EPA has made a range of improvements to Waste Tracker following consultation with users in 2021. These improvements went live on 3 September 2022.
Note drivers no longer need to manually input their vehicle identification number (VIN) when completing waste records. This change responds to feedback from industry and will be formalised by a proposed amendment to the Environment Protection Regulations 2021 which currently require waste transporters to enter VIN data.
