LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has slammed the Palaszczuk Labor Government for slugging Queenslanders even more through the waste tax.
"This tax was a con job from the start and in true Labor style, it's only getting worse," Ms Frecklington said.
"Labor is jacking up the cost of a tax they did not even take to the election, but dumped on Queenslanders in this year's Labor Budget.
"Queenslanders will now fork out $75 per tonne, instead of the $70 per tonne slug put forward when the bad tax was first announced by Labor.
"The tax should not have been forced on Queenslanders in the first place, and now Labor have bungled its introduction.
"Delaying the start date exposes the waste tax for the scam it really is.
"Labor told Queenslanders the waste tax was needed urgently to fix a dumping crisis in Ipswich, but months and months have gone by and now the tax has been delayed.
"This is not an urgent waste solution – it's simply a blatant $1.3 billion tax grab.
"It doesn't matter what the problem is, Labor's solution is always tax, tax and more tax.
"Labor should scrap this tax immediately.
"Labor's waste tax will cost councils, slug families and smash small businesses in every corner of this state.
"An LNP Government I lead will not introduce any new taxes."
