WA Office Opinion
Landfill Regulation Act

The proposal at-vote, 'Landfill Regulation Act', was written to limit the health hazards and environmental damage solid waste landfills can cause. While a laudable cause, the resolution runs into a few issues.

There is a very broad definition of a 'solid waste landfill', including scrap metal yards or extremely small landfills without the capability to cause widespread environmental or health damage. By applying the mandate on all types of landfills, systems to collect leachate and physical barriers must be constructed regardless of whether they are useful. Such a broad mandate makes it more expensive to dispose of rubbish properly, creating incentives for littering and fly tipping.

Next, the resolution mandates the governments of member nations create agencies or organisations to inspect landfills. This creates more bureaucracy and negatively affects member nations who contract out inspection of landfills. These nations are required to create agencies inspect landfills even if they already do so.

Finally, there is the problem that is resolution tackles a national issue, not an international one. Landfills are generally run by provincial or municipal governments, rather than on a national and definitely not on an international scale. Landfills have very little potential to cause international damage, and the damage that can be caused is already greatly limited by previous resolutions such as Transboundary Water Use Act, Convention on Freshwater Shortages, Preventing Groundwater Contamination, etc.

The WA Office recommends a vote against the proposal, ‘Landfill Regulation Act’.

Why was I tagged?!

Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams – which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes – and oft-ignored RMB messages.

The above tags were generated automatically by InfoEurope.

You can opt out of tagging by sending a telegram to the Office's WA Secretary or the Undersecretary for Communications. Current staffing information is located in the "STAFF" tab at the top of this page.
