The Tasmanian Economic Regulator released its Sewerage and Trade Waste Charging Issues Paper on 24 February 2023.​ The Regulator sought written submissions by close of business Friday 28 A​pril 2023.​​​

Submissions were received from:

 Nekon Pty Ltd (PDF 417Kb)

After reviewing the submissions on the Issues Paper, it became apparent to the Regulator that the complexities of trade waste charging were greater than originally anticipated. On 11 July 2023, the Regulator therefore decided that further work will need to be done to fully understand the options available for tra​de waste charging and the impacts arising from any changes to trade waste charging.

For this reason, the Regulator also decided at this time that the review of trade waste charging should be dealt with separately from sewerage charging.​

The terms of reference for the inquiry are available here.​
