Six waste vouchers are issued each financial year to all residential properties that receive a domestic waste service. Vouchers are attached to the first rates notice issued in July each year.
The following conditions of use apply:
Vouchers are only valid for use at the Broome Waste Management Facility.
Vouchers can only be used for domestic household waste.
Each voucher can be used to dispose of up to one trailer (7 x 4) or equivalent load.
Vouchers cannot be used for disposing of mattresses, tyres, gas bottles or special waste such as asbestos.
Vouchers are valid for 12 months.
Vouchers must be presented at the time of disposal.
Replacement vouchers can be issued by visiting the Shire Administration building at the corner of Weld and Hass Street.
Vouchers are sent out with the Council rates notice. Renters are encouraged to request vouchers from their landlord/property manager.
Each voucher is given a unique bar code. Resale of vouchers may result in the user being identified and the voucher rendered void.
Commercial property waste services do not include vouchers
Not for profit organisations that receive a domestic kerbside service are eligible for tip vouchers.
For residents outside the waste management service area, alternate service arrangements are available through a self haul voucher system. Residents can drop into the Shire Administration Office between 9am - 4pm, Monday to Friday, to obtain a voucher. A cost applies. These vouchers allow for up to 999 visits to the landfill. Commercial customers cannot access this voucher.
