Waste Tariff Strategy & Model


Municipal Solid Waste Tariff Strategy was developed by the Department in 2011.  The purpose of the Tariff Strategy is to provide a framework and guidance for municipalities in setting solid waste tariffs that align with the intentions of the National Waste Management Strategy (NWMS, 2011). The NWMS recognises the importance of full cost accounting as the foundation of financial sustainability, which is critical in the delivery of effective and efficient waste services and in the promotion of waste minimisation, reuse, recycling and recovery.  The municipalities can access the tariff strategy, guidelines, step-by-step guide and the excel based spreadsheet in this section
