Liquid waste collection service

Council's holding tank service contract will be changing soon.

At the moment, council coordinates the holding tank collection service on behalf of our community.  We engage a contractor to collect and dispose of liquid waste.

The service has recently undergone a review which has resulted in some changes.

As of 9 July 2023, council will no longer provide this service to our community.

As with every service we provide, we seek to offer excellent customer outcomes that represent best value for money for our community.

However, the review found that from July 2022, the costs for council to continue to provide this service will increase considerably.

From July 2023 there will no longer be any benefit to households from council performing a coordination role for this service.

The review also found that there are now more private companies that offer a liquid waste collection service.

This gives property owners more choice when choosing a new supplier.
