ASBG has undertaken a comparison of Queensland's new hazardous waste classification limits and compared them to NSW and Victorian limits.  Queensland's recent Waste Reduction and Recycling Regulation 2011 introduced these new limits to set its $50/t and $150/t waste levies for low and high hazardous wastes.  This is somewhat different to NSW and Victorian classifications which also set landfill acceptance limits.  Queensland's landfill acceptance limits are licence specific and vary from each landfill.

In brief the Queensland limits average about 5 times tighter than those used in NSW and Victoria.  Other states use even less stringent criteria, easily making Queensland Australia's tightest hazardous waste classification system.
