Fees and Charges 2020/21
As it is now July 1, the fees and charges schedule for 2020/21 is now in place. It’s good news though, as council voted to keep the schedule the same as last year, except where legislation required a change.
The new solid waste charges means the disposal of refuse at our landfill and transfer stations has increased from $120/tonne to $130/tonne (or $12 to $13 for a small car load). This is to cover increased costs relating to the Emissions Trading Scheme. There are no changes to any other refuse and recycling fees and charges.
The building levy has decreased from $2.05 to $1.75. The building levy is a charge that we collect on behalf of the MBIE and a change to the Building Act requires that the levy decrease.
