Residents are reminded to check their rate notice envelope or electronic communications for their waste disposal vouchers.
Each waste disposal voucher, issued to the owner of a residential property with their rate notice, entitles the resident to dispose of one load of self-hauled domestic mixed waste or domestic green waste at any Council waste facility.
Residents can then take advantage of free waste disposal at a time and day that suits them while the vouchers are valid. Vouchers are issued annually in July and expire 31 August the following year.
The vouchers do not allow for the dumping of tyres, mattresses or asbestos related materials and commercial waste is also excluded.
Council encourages landlords to pass the free waste vouchers on to their tenants.

With dog registrations also being issued from 29 July, residents wishing to use the online payment option should select the make multiple payments tab on the payments page.
