Port Phillip Council draft budget 2010-11, 5

.7% of the increase in rate income is to pay for the increase in the landfill levy which has gone from $9 per tonne in 2009/10 to $30 per tonne from 1 July 2010.
The purpose of the increase is to drive diversion from landfill, stimulate waste avoidance, resource recovery and recycling, and invest in alternate waste treatment facilities.
