|Report waste from council engineering works as construction & demolition waste.|
What you will need
|Record VENM as construction and demolition (C&D) waste.|
To claim exemptions, you will need:
Occupiers of landfills that receive more than 20,000 tonnes of waste per year (10,000 tonnes from 1 September 2006) are required to install an approved weighbridge. You are required to report waste received in the quantities recorded by the weighbridge (with the exception of small vehicles, which may be reported as either weighed or unweighed waste).
You may report waste received in small vehicles (cars and stationwagons; utes, vans and trailers) as either:
- as weighed waste – where you have chosen not to use weight conversion factors. Report the waste against the appropriate material composition code (MCC).
- as unweighed waste - as the number of small vehicles (cars and stationwagons; utes, vans and trailers). The system will automatically apply weight conversion factors to calculate the weight in tonnes from the number of vehicles you report.
|If only part of a waste item is exempt, enter the exempt quantity separately from the remaining quantity.|
The exemptions you claim here will be listed by the system on the Exemptions screen.
How to claim exemptions
- Ash, dredging spoil: these exemptions cannot be claimed from municipal waste. They can only be claimed from C&I and C&D waste.
- Community service or incident waste: select the Community service or incident option from the Claim exemption dropdown box, and the appropriate material composition code. You will then be prompted to enter the approval number issued by the EPA to the recipient of the approval.
