    Hi everyone! As a tenant I have never been given any dump tickets to use (entitles you to free trips to the tip). I just received ours for the year and am planning on sending half of them to our tenants. What is the standard? Does anyone else do this?

    Sounds like a good idea. Hopefully it equals less crap when they eventually leave.

    They're for the property unless you're generating heats of waste and don't believe the tenant creates waste.

    We have a big yard with palms in it so I imagine they will want to dump these. We also have a green waste bin for them to use which is probably overkill. We won't need them as we live in another state, so they may as well have them.

    If landlord is not living in same council area, and is not in need of it, best to pass it on to tenants.

    We receive tip vouchers for 1 property (Shoalhaven Council), we keep them and use them when performing maintenance/cleaning up the property or between tenants.

    Should just give it to then. You'll never use that much anyway. Even thou they have expired dates you can still use them. They have been accepting them. So by now u should have a stockpile of the tickets.

    One word,"NO" if you self manage and everything is within a 3oklm's drive then do all the yard maintenance yourself ,and pay the tip fees yourself that way the UTE and the mowing blowers all the tools,plus dump fees are tax deductible plus the klm's from the time you leave your base camp ppor
    btw,i'm not a Accountant in any way,just a former Tradesperson ,maybe a Accountant that has too re study each six months to keep up with all the changes the system puts out maybe explain in better terms..

    Thanks everyone. Since we no longer self manage I will stick to my original plan and send them half. Will send them the rest if they sign on for the rest of the year. The Brisbane City Council do not typically accept expired tickets.

    The BCC also data match the number plates that people use when you use several different free tickets from several different locations..

    If you use a property manager, I'd guess your PM should pass them onto tenants automatically.

    Sure, I don't want to deal with any paperwork or bills.
    Only exception being insurance policies and land tax notices.

    Do you pay a property manager to manage your property?
