Can Australian corporates afford to be caught up in the QLD landfill scam?
Australian companies are being scammed by waste companies every day. A selection of companies are charging all of their customers landfill levies for waste produced in NSW with no intention of paying out the levies they have collected. All of the attention thus far is on the $70 million in lost levies to the NSW tax office, I'm more concerned about the $70 million paid by NSW businesses under the guise of a levy that is pocketed by the waste companies.
The NSW EPA and the QLD EPA need to earn their dough for once and sort out this mess before the community loses complete faith in the waste industry and the effort of recycling.
