Waste fee refund offered after repeal of tax

REFUNDS for waste management services are being offered to all Gladstone property owners following the repeal of the carbon tax.

The once-only concession of $14.40 is the combined rate charged by council for the year's 2013-14 and 2014-15.

In light of the repeal of the carbon tax, councillors on Tuesday voted during the general meeting to grant the concession to all affected property owners.

Mayor Gail Sellers said the repeal of the carbon tax would also decrease waste disposal fees locally.

"Council recognises that this liability no longer exists and, as a result, is offering the refund on costs that had been adopted for the 2014/15 budget for the provision of its garbage collection program," she said.

"The repeal of the carbon tax will also result in a decrease in disposal fees for bulk waste brought directly to council's waste management facilities."
