Dispose of waste for free with our waste voucher system
Monday, 07 January 2019
Lismore City Council offers all residential and business properties free visits to the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre or Nimbin Transfer Station each year through our electronic waste voucher system.
Owner/occupiers or tenants of residential or commercial properties in the Lismore Local Government Area can apply online using one of the links below. There is also an information sheet with details about the voucher system.
While Council encourages people to use the electronic system wherever possible, those with no computer access or email can apply in person at Council's Corporate Centre, 43 Oliver Avenue, Goonellabah, or over the phone on 1300 87 83 87.
The system entitles residential voucher holders to three free visits, and commercial / business voucher holders two free visits to the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre or Nimbin Transfer station each year. Voucher holders can dispose of approximately one ute or trailer load of waste each visit. The following maximum volumes will be accepted:
- 200 kilograms of mixed general waste (not sortable)
- 333 kilograms of self-sort waste (50% recoverable)
- 714 kilograms of green waste
- 1,666 kilograms or 1.6 tonne of scrap steel
- One gassed whitegood or two un-gassed whitegoods
- Five car/4x4 tyres or one truck tyre
People who bring more than these amounts will incur standard waste disposal charges. Please note no asbestos or commercial quantities of chemicals are allowed.
