Written submissions by any person in support of or objecting to the proposed local law or about the public interest test plan are invited for a 21 day period commencing on Thursday 9 November 2017 and ends at close of business on Friday 1 December 2017

North Burnett Regional Council (the “Council”) has proposed to make Local Law No. 6 (Waste Management) 2017 (the “proposed local law”).

The proposed local law is a new law to best facilitate waste management delivery.

Possible anti-competitive provisions have been identified in the proposed local law. Council is conducting a public interest test in relation to possible anti-competitive provisions identified in the proposed local law.

The object of this local law is to protect the public health, safety and amenity related to waste management by—

(a)  regulating the storage, servicing and removal of waste; and

(b)  regulating the disposal of waste at waste facilities; and

(c)  ensuring that an act or omission does not result in—

i.  harm to human health or safety or personal injury; or

ii.  property damage or loss of amenity; or

iii. environmental harm or environmental nuisance.

Specifically, the proposed local law is aimed at replacing the expiring clauses in Chapter 5A of the Environmental Protection Regulation 2008 and the section 7 in Part 2A of the Waste Reduction and Recycling Regulation 2011.
