Council to Issue EPA with a Please Explain

resource recovery centre

Wingecarribee Council could be owed millions of dollars in overpaid Environmental Waste Levy fees.

It was revealed at last night's council meeting that Council is currently levied at the Metro Rate of $138.20 per tonne as opposed to the Regional Rate of $79.60 per tonne.

It's also come to light that Wollondilly Council pays the regional rate, even though our shire is further away from the Sydney.

Mayor Ken Halstead says he's not happy about the revelations and expects the matter to be followed up with the Environment Protection Authority.
