Rate Concessions

Previously, the State Government funded concessions on Council rates.  These concessions were formerly available to the holders of pensioner concession cards, veterans, low income earners, unemployed, students and self-funded retirees. The previous concessions were abolished by the State Government effective from 1 July 2015 and the concessions were replaced with a single "cost of living payment" provided directly to those entitled. From 1 July 2017, the concession entitlements for Council Community Waste Water Schemes (CWMS) will be paid directly to those entitled.

To check eligibility, contact the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) Concessions Hotline 1800 307 758 or www.sa.gov.au.

Available to Commonwealth Pensioner Concession Card holders only is a 60% rebate on Council's mobile garbage bin fee.  More information in the flyer which can be downloaded here
