The 1998 and 2002 national waste policy statements and the 2001 amendments to the Waste Management Law established ambitious targets and introduced measures for improved waste management. A number of targets were met in advance of their due dates, including the 2010-11 targets for recovery of paper, cardboard, wood and packaging waste, and the 2013 targets for recovery of construction and demolition waste and municipal waste. Large-scale illegal waste dumping has been eliminated through a mix of measures, such as widening kerbside collection of household waste, setting up a specialised EPA enforcement office and introducing complaint procedures and sanctions.
