 I’m headed for Wagga Wagga, the carbon tax capital of NSW. 

Have Your Say

Wagga City Council is one of a few councils that have not taken action to prevent landfill gas emissions. Many have installed gas generators and sell the power and also earn renewable energy certificates. The Clean Energy Council website lists a number of case studies. The first on the list is Belconnen landfill.

The Australian Government Clean Energy Future website describes assistance available for landfill operators to prevent landfill gas emissions and potentially earn revenue. This is under a program called the Carbon Farming Initiative.

This is how it begins. Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who promised during the 2010 election campaign that there would be no carbon tax, last year announced a carbon tax. “Carbon pollution is a threat to our country, and a threat to our future prosperity,” the Prime Minister said, adding: “If you put a price on something, people will use less of it.”

And this is how it ends. In Wagga Wagga, population 63,000, residents will potentially be hit with annual carbon tax bills of $600,000 or more – just for taking their rubbish to the tip.

Wagga council is already budgeting for this ridiculous outcome based on carbon dioxide emission totals from the local tip during past years. Under the government’s carbon tax rules, landfill sites that emit more than 25,000 tonnes of CO2 per year face a $23 per tonne penalty.


“We have a range of views here,” says the region’s federal MP Michael McCormack, “except on the carbon tax.” McCormack rejoices in being the only MP to be ejected from the House of Representatives on the day the carbon tax was signed into law. Wagga’s Daily Advertiser is a Fairfax title, but unlike Fairfax’s Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age is completely opposed to the tax, mainly because in Wagga they actually know what it costs. “What a load of rot,” a recent editorial declared. “This climate change nonsense is now totally out of control … For heaven’s sake just what is the federal government thinking?”
