Amendment of Fees and Charges – Tyre Disposal Fees

Published on Wednesday, 6 December 2023 at 2:34:03 PM

In July 2023, Council adopted its 2023/24 schedule of fees and charges including a significant revision of tyre disposal charges applicable at the Brown Range waste facility.  Those fees and charges came into effect on 25 September 2023. 

Council undertook to review the waste disposal fees six months after their implementation due to the extensive nature of the changes.

However, on receiving feedback from the community, Council has acknowledged that the introduction of a $2/kg disposal fee for tyres, rather than by tyre type, has proven difficult to implement and arrive at a per kg fee equivalent to the fee charged by tyre type.

Consequently, Council has resolved to return to the previous method of charging by ‘tyre type’ for disposal of tyres at the Brown Range waste facility.  The below table contains the revised pricing including a CPI increase applicable as at 25 September 2023.
