7/07/2017 New fees and charges apply as of 7 July 2017 for the disposal of waste at Tamala Park. At the Ordinary Council Meeting of the MRC last night the Council approved increases to a number of Fees and Charges at Tamala Park. The main increases being for general waste, $210/tonne ($200/tonne 2016/2017), and the minimum entry fee being $17 ($16 2016/2017). The increases are seen due to the increase of the landfill levy from $60 to $65 per tonne landfilled, effective from 1 July 2017 and a small inflationary increase.

In addition to the MRC’s normal operations is funding for the extension of the recycling shop area at Tamala Park. Budget details are outlined in Appendix 7 of the MRC Ordinary Council meeting Agenda – 6 July 2017, click here.
