The Resource Recovery Centre entry fees change annually and are effective from 1 July 2024. There will be a significant increase in the fees for certain loads this year. This is due to an increase in the State Landfill Levy and the resulting cost impact on landfill load.  This is approximately 40 – 50% dependent on the load size.

To ensure this impact is minimised, a tiered fee structure has been introduced on a ‘user pays’ basis. In this way, the cost increase can be reduced by sorting your load to ensure the amount going to landfill is minimised. For example:

Sedan, hatch or station wagon (seats up) 

  • Full recovery load (recycle/reuse) $16 
  • Partial landfill load $20 
  • Full landfill load $25 (Previously $15.00)

Van, ute or single axle trailer

  • Full recovery load (recycle/reuse) $23 
  • Partial landfill load $30 
  • Full landfill load $38 (Previously $22) 

Tandem axle trailer

  • Full recovery load (recycle/reuse) $32 
  • Partial landfill load $51 
  • Full landfill load $71 (Previously $29)

The full fee schedule is now available on the Council website.

Fees & Charges 2024-25


The Tasmanian Government landfill levy is a fee on waste that is disposed at landfills after 1 July 2022.  The levy is being introduced to encourage a reduction in waste, with collected money being spent on resource recovery and education about waste.  For most services like household collection and the Lobster Creek Resource Recovery Centre (RRC), this fee is collected by the Council on behalf of the State Government.  To cover the levy from waste disposed of at Country Transfer Stations, the number of provided coupons has been reduced.
