Current resource recovery orders and exemptions
The resource recovery orders and resource recovery exemptions listed below are currently in force and may be used by anyone in NSW, without seeking approval from the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), provided the waste generators, processors and consumers fully comply with the conditions.
Resource recovery orders and resource recovery exemptions are issued by the NSW Environment Authority (EPA) by notice in the NSW Government Gazette and are published below on the EPA website. In circumstances where resource recovery orders and resource recovery exemptions are granted to specified persons only, the EPA will issue a written notice.
Development consent may be required
Resource recovery orders and resource recovery exemptions do not release those using them from complying with relevant planning consent requirements. If you wish to use an order or exemption, it is your responsibility to seek any necessary development consents from the appropriate regulatory authority.
