This paper assesses the extent to which the accountability expectations of the Australian federal government with respect to the reporting of waste data are satisfied by local government authorities in Southern Tasmania. A case study, based on the Southern Tasmanian Waste Strategy Authority and its member councils, shows the complex accountability relations generated by outsourcing of waste management services in local government and the instrumental, legalistic attitude of managers to their accountability responsibilities.
