Quarantine waste, also known as biosecurity waste, refers to any item that has been rejected for entry into Australia. In some cases, the items may require treatment before being allowed into the country, while in other cases, the items are marked for immediate disposal due to the hazard they represent.
This includes packing material, food waste, pets, by-products created from the treatment of imported goods, biohazard quarantine items and goods seized during quarantine inspections.
Quarantine waste management
Quarantine and biosecurity waste can only be handled by an Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) provider. Cleanaway’s quarantine waste solutions are approved by AQIS, and all the quarantine waste we process is transported to secure landfill.
