$4.03 credit per rates assessment being processed

Gosford Council has resolved to provide the city’s ratepayers with a credit for the carbon component of its domestic waste charge collected during 2014/2015.

In 2014/2015, almost $270,000 was collected via the domestic waste charge’s carbon component which, when apportioned across 66,900 properties, equates to a $4.03 credit per rates assessment.

Carbon tax funds collected as part of landfill gate fees between July 2012 and July 2014 will also be used to reduce Council’s carbon footprint through various projects and initiatives. The carbon component of Council’s landfi ll gate fees was removed in July 2014.
