The Waste Collection and Recycling Service Charge is levied on all rate accounts that are rated residential, commercial or industrial and also those rated primary production with habitable houses.
Council is required to recover no more than the actual cost of providing the service. The calculated cost for waste collection in 2019/2020 is $271.00 per property. A number of rural properties are charged on a tiered basis depending on the distance to the nearest collection point.
This service is not available for properties more than five kilometres from a collection point unless negotiated separately with Council. Service Distance from collection point
