Disposal costs as of 1 July 2018
Although most waste disposal charges have remained unchanged, new fees now apply for waste that cannot be recycled.
The new charges apply to any material, which has to be buried in landfill because it cannot be re-used. The fees are based on weight.
For example, people disposing of general waste at the push pit and have less than 100 kg of non-recyclable material will continue to pay only $5. For people offloading larger quantities, for example, 250 kg of the general waste in the push pit, will pay $38.25.
The fees for this service remain cheaper than other waste management centres across the region.
This change aims to help the community halve the amount of waste we bury by 2020, and follows a recent significant increase in the delivery of non-recyclable waste delivery (some brought from communities outside of Albury) that restricted our ability to reach the Halve Waste target.
The new fee structure provides incentives to recycle by reducing costs for every item recycled rather than buried.
Essentially, the less you bury, the more you save.
It’s also important to note that Albury residents will continue to receive vouchers as part of the domestic waste charge to cover the disposal of all general waste. With opportunities on-site to recycle plastics, organics, paper, Styrofoam, hazardous materials like batteries and paint, and a range of other items, we encourage everyone to re-use and recycle.
In this way, we’re all helping our environment while ensuring waste disposal costs are kept to a minimum.
