Waste vouchers

A pile of junk on the kerb.

Each household can apply for one waste voucher per financial year to dispose of waste.

A total of 5000 vouchers are available per financial year. This means, on average, that 416 vouchers will be available each month depending on the number of vouchers redeemed.

While Council encourages people to use the electronic system wherever possible, those with no computer access or email can apply in person or over the phone on (02) 6625 0500. You'll need your rates assessment number (property owners) or proof of tenancy (tenants) to apply.
