Why has the waste charge increased?

Because annual waste collection and disposal service costs have increased, as has the Victorian Government’s landfill levy for waste disposed at landfill sites. 

The recycling costs have increased due to China announcing it will no longer accept imported recycling materials. 

Please note: 

  • Garbage charges are not subject to rate capping. 
  • The waste charge is based on the size and type of bin. 

Previous years and current years bin charges: 

Residential 120L bin $421.30 $479.80
Residential 80L bin
$335.50 $382.10
Green Waste 240L bin $150.20 $156.30
