Abstract

The Waste Management Facilities Database presents the spatial locations of Australia's known landfills, waste transfer stations and a large number of waste reprocessing facilities. The data are a compilation of Australian, jurisdictional government, council and industry databases. The purpose of the Waste Management Facilities Database is to support decision makers from industry, governments and other interested parties make better, and more informed decisions based on evidence based information. The Waste Management Facilities Database fields include: NAME - Name of the feature. LANDFILL - Landfill classification (Closed, Not Applicable, Operating, Unknown) REPROCESSING - Recycling plant classification (Closed, Not Applicable, Operating, Unknown) TRANSFERSTATION - Transfer station classification (Closed, Not Applicable, Operating, Unknown) OPERATOR - Operator of the facility OWNER - Owner of facility SITEID - Geoscience Australia generated unique ID for feature SITEADDRESS - Street address of feature SITESUBURB - Suburb feature located in POSTCODE - Postcode for feature STATE - State feature located in FEATURERELIABILITY - Reliability/currency date of FEATURESOURCE FEATURESOURCE - Image or file name used to validate/digitize feature ATTRIBUTERELIABILITY - Reliability/currency date of ATTRIBUTESOURCE ATTRIBUTESOURCE - Authority, Organisation sourced for validating feature PLANIMETRICACCURACY - Planimetric accuracy of image used to digitize the feature SPATIALCONFIDENCE - 1 to 5 (1 bad - 5 excellent) rating of spatial and attribute data METADATACOMMENT - Comment field Geoscience Australia compiled this database with the assistance of the following: - Local governments / councils - Australian Capital Territory Government - ACT No Waste - New South Wales State Government - Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water - Northern Territory Government - Natural Resources, Environment, the Arts & Sport - Queensland State Government - Natural Resources and Environment - South Australian State Government - Environment Protection Authority - Victorian State Government - Environment Strategies Unit - Western Australian State Government - Department of Environment and Conservation - Waste Management Association of Australia - Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities - Veolia Environment - Geoscience Australia - National Geographic Information Group Note 1: This database is for public, industry and government use under the CC-BY arrangements.
