As from 1 July 2015, as per the current Annual Operational Plan fees and charges, there will be NO CHARGE for domestic customers for greenwaste, tyres, fridges, freezers and air conditioners.
At the ordinary meeting of the Tamworth Regional Council, held 28 July 2015, a report was submitted for Council consideration and approval seeking an amendment to the volume of tyres and items containing refrigerant gas in any one visit to a landfill site by a domestic customer. This report was endorsed and resolved under Council minute number 185/15. The proposed changes were advertised for a period of 28 days for public consultation and no submissions were received.
Therefore, as of Friday, 29 August 2015 the changes to the allowable volumes in any one visit to the landfill came into effect.
The following changes apply for domestic customers:-
- Tyres with or without rim (motorcycle, car, 4WD) – 5 per visit/transaction to the landfill; and
- Items containing refrigerant gas (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners) -- 1 item per visit/transaction to the landfill.
