Controlled waste

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) regulates the transportation of controlled waste on roads in Western Australia.

DWER does so by administering the Environmental Protection (Controlled Waste) Regulations 2004 (the Regulations) under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (the Act).

The Regulations provide for the licensing of carriers, drivers, and vehicles involved in transporting controlled waste on roads in Western Australia.

General information on the Department’s regulatory role and the timeframes for assessments and determinations is outlined in the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation - Regulatory Services Factsheet.
