Electronic waste voucher system


Only apply for a voucher if you intend to use it within the next 30 days, or until 30 June - whatever is earlier.

To apply for a waste voucher, property owners will require their rates assessment number and tenants will be required to upload proof of tenancy.

Councillors voted during their 2020/2021 budget considerations to limit the number of vouchers to one per property annually, capped at 5000 for the Lismore Local Government Area.

This typically means 416 vouchers will be available each month, depending on the number of vouchers that are redeemed.

Each voucher will have an expiry date of 30 days from the date of issue, or until 30 June - whatever is earlier.

Once expired, any unused vouchers will be returned to the pool of remaining vouchers and made available for issue in future months. Returned vouchers will be allocated evenly across all remaining months in the year.

Each voucher is to the value of $70.70 for the disposal of waste material at the Lismore Recycling and Recovery Centre or the Nimbin Transfer Centre.

The following maximum volumes will be accepted:
  • 200 kilograms of mixed general waste (not sortable)
  • or 333 kilograms of self-sort waste (50% recoverable)
  • or 714 kilograms of green waste
  • or 1,666 kilograms or 1.6 tonne of scrap steel
  • or One gassed whitegood or two un-gassed whitegoods
  • or Five car/4x4 tyres or one truck tyre.
People who bring more than these amounts will incur standard waste disposal charges which can be paid by eftpos only. Please note no asbestos or commercial quantities of chemicals are allowed.
