2018/19 waste vouchers have landed

The 2018/19 waste vouchers for the Cessnock Waste Management Centre have been distributed to residents in the July rates notice and there is an important change to note.

Cessnock City Council would like to advise that the 2018/19 vouchers include a property address and residents are now required to show a proof of address to match the one listed on the voucher.

Council’s Environment and Waste Manager, Michael Alexander said, “This change is about process improvement and to ensure reports on the Centre’s use are accurate each year.”

Each household that pays the Domestic Waste Management Charge (DWMC) will receive four vouchers attached to their July rates notice and renters should speak to their property manager about collection of these vouchers.

Each voucher entitles residents to dispose of up to 500kg of waste. Anything over this amount will need to be paid for by cash or card, or the use of multiple vouchers.

Residents are also reminded that vouchers are not transferrable or permitted to be sold. If this happens, it will result in the voucher(s) being voided.

Households that are out of the waste management service area and do not receive vouchers can purchase alternate service vouchers. These are sold at a discounted rate compared to the gate fees at the site.
