Updated waste charge on 2020–21 rates
Updated waste charge - 2020–21
Ratepayers who pay a waste charge will receive a credit on their 2020-21 rates of $4.95 (residential properties) or $5.40 (commercial properties) due to the reduced state government landfill levy not being reflected in the waste charge amount on council’s annual rates notice.
The credit has been immediately applied and affected ratepayers will see this credit reflected as a reduced balance owing on their second instalment notice due to be issued in late October 2020.
Council apologises for any inconvenience.
