About Waste Tracker
Learn about EPA's system for tracking reportable priority waste in Victoria
Waste Tracker is an electronic system that tracks reportable priority waste in Victoria. It replaces EPA's former waste transport certificate system.
Waste Tracker does not replace commercial transaction records, logistics or inventory management systems.
Under the Environment Protection Act 2017 (the Act), anyone who handles reportable priority waste must let EPA know every time it changes hands.
This section has not been updated since November 2022. The list of waste tracker enhancements and planned releases may not be up to date.
EPA is making a range of changes to Waste Tracker following consultation with industry in late 2021. The project will run until March 2023. Enhancements will be regularly released, with the first release in December 2022.
EPA will continue to make improvements to increase the performance of the system.
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.
