Council elections - enrol to vote by 10 August


How can you make a difference? You can influence what happens in your local community in two ways – by nominating for a position on council, or by voting for a candidate who represents your views.

Enrolling to vote

Voting in council elections is open to a broader range of people than State and Federal elections. Even if you are not an Australian citizen, and/or not on the State Electoral Roll you can vote in a council election, as long as you are above 18 years of age and have lived in the council area for more than one month. You can also vote in a council election if you own a rateable property in the area, regardless of whether you live in it.

Another important difference is that businesses and body-corporates can vote in council elections.

For more information about eligibility and to obtain a voter registration form for the supplementary roll, visit:

Enrolments close 5.00pm, Friday 10 August 2018.

Important recycling update!


China's National Sword Policy has left many of our residents wondering whether it is still worth recycling. The answer is yes!

Residents are urged to continue to place recyclable material into the recycling bin (yellow lid) for collection. East Waste has confirmed there is still a market for these recyclables, for the time being. More importantly, we encourage everyone to reduce their waste rather than relying on recycling, where possible.
