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.
