The annual waste service charge is the fee each property owner pays for the kerbside waste collection and processing provided by Council.
Fees apply to both residential and commercial properties.
All Council fees and charges are reviewed annually as part of Council's budget process.
The waste service charge is calculated to cover the full cost of collecting all household waste, as well as bulk clean-ups, waste processing/disposal, landfill, education, communications, illegal dumping, provision for future waste service planning, new technologies and associated services. The charge is calculated in line with changes to the recycling market and EPA landfill levies.
Council does not profit from this charge and all money goes into the provision and improvement of waste services.
