Tracking waste tyres and asbestos waste

The Integrated Waste Tracking Solution (IWTS) is the EPA’s new online system for tracking waste tyres and asbestos, within NSW.

The Integrated Waste Tracking Solution (IWTS) has replaced the Online Waste Tracking (OWT) and WasteLocate systems for tracking the transport of hazardous and other high-risk wastes. Our website will shortly be updated to reflect this change.

In the meantime, you can find out more about the IWTS here or by contacting us on (02) 9585 6303 or

All waste tyres and asbestos waste must be tracked when they are transported. This is generally when they are moved from the place of generation to a final destination.

Under clauses 76 and 79 of the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2014, waste operators, transporters, and waste and recycling facilities must provide information to the EPA:

  • when consigning, transporting or accepting tyres with a total weight of more than 200 kilograms, or 20 or more tyres, in any single load; or
  • when consigning, transporting or accepting more than 100 kilograms of asbestos waste, or more than 10 square metres of waste asbestos sheeting, in any single load.

To meet the clause 76 and 79 requirements, you must use the IWTS. It applies across all NSW for transporting waste tyres within NSW. 

If transporting waste tyres or asbestos waste interstate, other tracking requirements apply.

About the Integrated Waste Tracking Solution (IWTS)

The IWTS is a digital tool that enables waste consignors, transporters and receivers to track and report on all types of hazardous and regulated waste in one system.

The IWTS was designed in consultation with industry, government agencies and local government to make it easier for industry to meet their regulatory requirements for tracking waste. The IWTS supports a more data-driven and risk-based approach to regulating hazardous wastes.

EPA monitors compliance

The EPA monitors these wastes to ensure:

  • consistency and certainty for the waste industry
  • a healthier environment for everyone
  • the EPA is kept informed on the movement of the asbestos waste and waste tyres within NSW
  • enforcement and compliance activities are targeted, while the impact on businesses obeying the law is minimised.

It is an offence:

  • if consigning and transporting waste tyres above the minimum thresholds, to not report that information to the EPA. The EPA has had the IWTS designed to facilitate those reporting obligations.
  • if consigning and transporting asbestos waste above the minimum thresholds, to not report that information to the EPA using the IWTS
  • to not report deliveries of asbestos waste and waste tyres that are not tracked by the IWTS.

The EPA can use a range of regulatory tools, including fines, to ensure compliance.
