The new grants provide a one off opportunity for eligible facilities to accelerate the installation of a weighbridge in compliance with the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2014 that requires any facility recovering, recycling, processing or storing waste and is liable for the waste levy in NSW to install a weighbridge and accurately record waste movements.
