Bring photo ID to obtain resident/ratepayer fees. Mitchell Shire property owners who live elsewhere should bring photo ID and a current rate notice in the same name and address.

EFTPOS is available at all Resource Recovery Centres.

Resource Recovery Centre vouchers

Council provides resource recovery centre vouchers each year with your rates notice.

Your rates notice contains a barcode that can be scanned up to 3 times at any of our Resource Recovery Centres. Each scan is worth $20 and the vouchers expires on 30 September each year.

Bring your voucher and proof of ID when you visit a Resource Recovery Centre. If your load exceeds the value of your Resource Recovery Centre voucher you will need to pay the difference.

Vouchers are not transferable for cash, cannot be redeemed or used for payment of any other Council account.
