ACCC seeks submissions

Friday, 10 October, 2008

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issued a decision proposing to allow the Inner Sydney Waste Management Group of Councils (ISWMG) to tender and contract for services to transfer, process and dispose of food and garden organic waste and to market and sell any end products in the relevant local government areas.

The ISWMG has developed the proposed waste management arrangements in response to a number of factors, including the NSW government's Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery targets, increasing landfill disposal fees and a shortage of land available for new landfills in the inner Sydney region.

The ACCC proposes to authorise the proposed conduct for a tender period of 12 months and an initial contract term of 10 years. The tender process is expected to begin in January 2009 if authorisation is granted.

The ACCC seeks submissions from interested parties in relation to its draft determination by 16 October 2008. For more information, visit ACCC website.
