Media Release - Waste Management - 2018/2019 Budget
A key function within Council is its waste management operations which comprise of two (2) functions, Waste Collection and Waste Disposal. Increased operational costs in both areas will see an increase in the service usage cost and the Council’s Waste Management levy for 2018/19 financial year.
Further, the impact of the reintroduction of the State Government’s Waste Disposal Levy on Council’s operations is yet to be determined.
Mayor Keith Campbell explained that this levy imposed on Council should not impact on household waste via kerbside collection as the State Government has advised we will be reimbursed for this expense. “However we are unsure at this time if this reimbursement will cover waste that residents take to transfer stations in rural areas or the additional costs associated Council administrating the state’s waste levy scheme.” said Mayor Keith Campbell
