Landfill fees will raise by about 10% from 1 February.
This is happening because the cost of carbon credits is rising under the Emission Trading Scheme, and our charges need to rise to meet this increase. The waste in Spicer Landfill causes the creation and emission of greenhouse gases.
Taking a car-load of general rubbish to the landfill will cost $21 from 1 February (just green waste is $11.50), while a small trailer will be $44.50 (green waste $23.50).
A full list of the new charges will be on the Spicer Landfill page of our website from 1 February.
Here is the information from the Ministry for the Environment regarding the new carbon prices.
