How not-for-profits benefit from council's new waste policy

A NEW policy from the Fraser Coast Regional Council will make it cheaper and easier for not-for-profit organisations to dispose of their waste.

Councillors could soon implement a waste disposal voucher for eligible organisations across the Fraser Coast, allowing them to cheaply dispose of waste from their activities and events without incurring a fee.

The motion was deferred to another meeting for deliberation.

Under the new policy, concession vouchers will be issued to not-for-profit organisations that use the region's waste and recycling disposal centres.

"Vouchers will be a maximum of 2m3 each and will be issued to an agreed amount, based on the size of the organisation and previous requests," council documents reveal.
