Our waste tracking system will help you 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 doesn’t replace commercial transaction records, logistics or inventory management systems.

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. You can start using Waste Tracker now.
EPA is making a range of changes to Waste Tracker following consultation with industry in late 2021. Planned enhancements include:
The project will run until August 2022. Enhancements are scheduled to be released in June and August 2022.
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.
The Waste Tracker webinar was held on 23 February 2021. The webinar provided an introduction to Waste Tracker, and provided an opportunity to ask questions about the new system.
