Free entry weekends for waste disposal

The City has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result the Council has had to make a number of significant changes to the 2020-21 budget to ensure ongoing operation and delivery of essential services and ensure no increases to rates, fees and charges. Unfortunately the difficult decision to cancel free entry weekends has been made, effective immediately.

Fees and charges

For all tip fees and charges please refer to our Fees and Charges page.

Good Neighbour Agreement 

The City and the South Hobart Community have developed A Good Neighbour Agreement for the McRobies Gully Waste Management Centre.  The Agreement aims to replicate the process of being good residential neighbours; things like keeping noise down, having properties looking neat and tidy, good open and honest communication, and looking out for each other. The City has held meetings, presented at public forums, and attended South Hobart events to field any questions the community has about the Waste Management Centre. For more information please see the Good Neighbour Agreement(PDF, 1MB).
