Waste fees and charges
These charges will apply to general waste, construction and demolition waste, bulky waste, green waste, tyres and some other types of waste.
Payment of charges
All major credit and debit cards are accepted for payment of waste disposal charges by electronic funds transfer (EFT). Tax invoices will be provided at the time of payment.
Council will no longer issue invoices for waste disposal charges.
Residents and businesses can pay with cash or by card when disposing of waste at our waste management facilities.
Businesses that accrue a minimum of $200 per month on waste disposal at waste management facilities may be eligible to dispose on credit and continue to receive invoices.
For more information, please contact Council on 1300 307 800.
The Queensland Government is introducing a levy on waste going to landfill at $75 per tonne from 1 July 2019.
The cost of disposing of waste to landfill will increase.
In respect of waste disposal charges at waste management facilities, we anticipate that the tonnage price for waste disposal to landfill (i.e. general waste and C&D waste) will not exceed $220 per tonne.
We recommend that businesses factor in the increase in disposal price when calculating costs for 2019/2020 (e.g. operational costs, contracts, quotes)
Council will communicate 2019/2020 charges to residents and businesses as soon as possible after the charges have been adopted.
