Overview

Product Stewardship for Oil Program aims to support and encourage the environmentally sustainable management of used oil.

Under the program, a levy (in the form of excise and customs duty) is collected on all petroleum-based oil or their synthetic equivalents produced in or imported into Australia. This levy is used to provide benefits to recyclers of used oil and users of gazetted oils.

The program pays a benefit in cents per litre of oil in eight categories:

  • categories 1 - 7 for recycling used oil
  • category 8 for using gazetted or eligible oil in a gazetted or eligible use.

More information on the rates is available at the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
