Relaxing certain waste regulatory requirements for volunteers and waste sites involved in voluntary litter collection: RPS 212

Rules for volunteers and waste sites on storing, transporting and accepting litter from voluntary litter collection.



Volunteers who transport litter from voluntary litter collections and follow the conditions in this regulatory position statement (RPS) do not need to:

  • apply for an environmental permit
  • register as a waste carrier
  • register an exemption

This RPS also allows permitted household waste sites to accept litter for disposal and recycling from voluntary litter collection. This includes sites that are not allowed to accept litter under the conditions of their permit.
