Submission on the Protection of the Environment Operations Amendment (Scheduled Activities and Waste) Regulation 2007

This submission generally welcomes most of the changes. The use of exemptions opens the way for many wastes to be more easily and environmentally responsibly beneficially used. However, the regulatory package contained an number of issues and apparent errors in definitions of wastes, hazardous wastes and other areas.

AEBN proposed a standard exemption covering the industrial activities that commonly use wastes as a raw material in a responsible manner. Under environmental laws such activities are in technical breach. This exemption provides a means to legitimise those recycling, reusing, reprocess that are environmentally responsible.
