Apologies for Cross-Postings

In New Zealand, a draft proposal for the introduction of a
$10-30/tonne levy on waste has been prepared by members of local
government and waste industry (convened by the Ministry for the
Environment). It is intended as a discussion paper for interested
parties to consider before a formal proposal is submitted to the
Minister for the Environment for the consideration of government.

This proposal is conceptual in nature and it is acknowledged that
further work will be required on the detail before any scheme can be
formally proposed.
