PREMIER Annastacia Palaszczuk will discuss the "alarming allegations" of organised networks shifting rubbish to Queensland with her New South Wales counterpart and said the state would not be dumping ground for its neighbour.

An ABC Four Corners investigation, aired on Monday night, revealed an organised network of waste transporting and freight companies were sending waste to Queensland in a bid to avoid a NSW landfill levy.

It is now reportedly cheaper to transport the waste to Queensland than pay the NSW levy of $138 per tonne.

Ms Palaszczuk said she will be discussing the "non-enforcement of the proximity principle" with the NSW Premier.
