How do I create an account?
You can create an account online — click here to register a new account. Waste Facilities are not required to register, unless you also consign tyre waste for transport to another location in NSW.
Do I need a QR2id Plate?
All waste facilities in NSW that that receive asbestos and/or tyre waste must display a Blue QR2id Location Plate to enable transporters to register the delivery of consignments. Plates are optional for tyre waste consignors, but are necessary for some location based functions that enhance efficiency in managing collection of consignments. Click Here for a flier that describes the plates for tyre outlets / waste consolidation locations.
Do I need to be logged in when scanning a QR2id Plate?
No, but you must be logged in to interact with consignments when picking up or delivering to a Waste Facility.
What if I am not logged in when scanning a QR2id Plate?
Look for the “Login For More Options” button to login to your WasteLocate Account. Once logged in information will be presented to you in the context of your role and the QR2id Code that has been scanned.
What is the best scanning App?
WasteLocate can be used with most any QR Scanning App from the App Store of your choice. However, Amtac has developed the QR2id App to tightly integrate with WasteLocate, and work across the two major smart phone operating systems. The QR2id App is now available for Apple and Android mobile devices.

What is WasteLocate?
If you transport asbestos waste, asbestos soils or waste tyres, you may be required to use EPA’s WasteLocate. WasteLocate tracks each load of asbestos or tyre waste from pick up to disposal using the GPS in your smart device. It generates a unique consignment number just like a parcel in the post. WasteLocate was developed to help prevent illegal dumping of asbestos and tyres.
