The Carbon Tax and your Rates
The cost for each individual household for land fill alone is estimated to be $35(0.974 tonnes per household residual waste x $35.70 = $34.76 per household per annum). Some sources indicate that this impost will only be added from the following financial year as the carbon is only released as the waste breaks down and not as it is dumped. Nevertheless, we as Councillors will have to do some serious thinking on this as more information comes available.
