When Charters Towers Region ratepayers receive their first Half Yearly Rates Notice, owners of residential properties within a 50km radius of Charters Towers will also be receiving two free waste vouchers for the first time.
The vouchers, also commonly referred to as ‘dump vouchers,’ have been introduced by Council to help with the cost of visits to the dump, and can be used at the Stubley Street Landfill and Resource Recovery Area.
The vouchers are valid until the end of the financial year, 30 June 2021.
“It’s great to see so many positive initiatives take place in the area of Waste Management,” said Waste Management Portfolio Councillor Alan Barr.
“In particular, I’m very happy to see free dump vouchers going into the hands of ratepayers to ease the costs of trips to the dump.”
The introduction of dump vouchers will be in lieu of the annual bulk rubbish collection service, though pensioners qualifying for a concession on their rates can still request a bulk rubbish collection by calling Council, submitting a Customer Request online or emailing email@example.com .
Hervey Range residents will continue to be offered a bulk rubbish collection, up to a maximum of two cubic metres, commencing from Monday, 26 October 2020. Hervey Range residents wishing to receive this service should contact Council to make a booking by calling 4761 5300.
