Abstract

The National Waste Management Database (upgraded) 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 National Waste Management Database is to support decision makers from industry, governments and other interested parties make better, and more informed decisions based on evidence based information. <strong>The National Waste Management Site Database fields include:</strong> <p><strong>NAME - </strong>Name of the feature. <strong>LANDFILL - </strong>Landfill classification (Closed, Not Applicable, Operating, Unknown) <strong>REPROCESSING - </strong>Recycling plant classification (Closed, Not Applicable, Operating, Unknown) <strong>TRANSFERSTATION - </strong>Transfer station classification (Closed, Not Applicable, Operating, Unknown) <strong>OPERATOR - </strong>Operator of the facility <strong>OWNER - </strong>Owner of facility <strong>SITEID - </strong>Geoscience Australia generated unique ID for feature <strong>SITEADDRESS - </strong>Street address of feature <strong>SITESUBURB - </strong>Suburb feature located in <strong>POSTCODE - </strong>Postcode for feature <strong>STATE - </strong>State feature located in <strong>FEATURERELIABILITY - </strong>Reliability/currency date of FEATURESOURCE <strong>FEATURESOURCE - </strong>Image or file name used to validate/digitize feature <strong>ATTRIBUTERELIABILITY - </strong>Reliability/currency date of ATTRIBUTESOURCE <strong>ATTRIBUTESOURCE - </strong>Authority, Organisation sourced for validating feature <strong>PLANIMETRICACCURACY - </strong>Planimetric accuracy of image used to digitize the feature <strong>SPATIALCONFIDENCE - </strong>1 to 5 (1 bad - 5 excellent) rating of spatial and attribute data <strong>METADATACOMMENT - </strong>Comment field</p> <strong>Geoscience Australia compiled this database with the assistance of the following:</strong> - 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 <strong>Note 1:</strong> This database is for public, industry and government use under the CC-BY arrangements. <strong>Note 2:</strong> A restricted version of this database is available to the list of data providers listed in the abstract.
