Waste Vouchers

Each res­i­den­tial Rates Notice includes two com­pli­men­ta­ry waste drop-off vouch­ers. Each unique­ly cod­ed Waste Vouch­er can be used as pay­ment to dis­pose of gen­er­al waste loads, con­struc­tion and demo­li­tion waste at the Region­al Waste Man­age­ment Facility.

Land­lords are encour­aged to dis­trib­ute unwant­ed / unused vouch­ers to ten­ants, before the 30 June.

To use a Waste Vouch­er, pro­ceed to the weigh­bridge booth and present the vouch­er to the weigh­bridge atten­dant. If you have signed for paper­less rates notices through BPAY View, your vouch­ers will be attached to the dig­i­tal copy of your rates notice. Dig­i­tal vouch­ers can either be scanned on a smart­phone at the weigh­bridge, or print­ed. Vouch­ers may be used once only – each vouch­er is unique­ly cod­ed and record­ed at the RWMF.
