Rebate for strata managers of new apartments where a private waste contractor is used (Inner West Council – Marrickville area only)

Strata managers who engage a private contractor to collect garbage and recycling from new apartments containing 20 or more units are eligible to apply for a rebate for each unit.

Note: This is where Council garbage and recycling bins/services are not provided. The reduced charge provides access to booked household clean up, drop offs (e.g. e-waste and chemicals) and programs.

Strata managers must complete this application form providing details of the garbage and recycling contractors, weights generated, and supporting evidence by the end of July each year. Please note the reporting period is from the previous financial year (July to June).

The rebate will be credited on the second rates notice of each individual unit by September each year.
