Electronic tip passes (CRC entry passes) coming to Mundaring

Published on Friday, 29 July 2022 at 3:31:12 PM

Shire of Mundaring residents who have registered for e-Rates will now receive their Community Recycling Centre entry pass (tip passes) electronically this financial year.

 e-Rates residents will receive an email inviting them to download a CRC entry pass, which allows homeowners and residents access to the Shire’s Community Recycling Centre’s in Mundaring and Chidlow.

 Shire President James Martin said the change comes as the Shire moves towards allowing residents to access more services digitally.

 “The Shire is upgrading how residents access services,” he said.

 “Traditionally a hardcopy pass had been posted with the annual rates notice to residents, including those who had registered for e-Rates.

 “This is one of the changes we are implementing to give ratepayers flexibility to have an entry pass stored on their phone, or for them to print their own hardcopy.”

 Visitors to the Community Recycling Centre with an emailed pass, will be able to download and save the pass to their phone as a photo image after registering in the My Mundaring Online portal. This will enable the barcode to be scanned at the entrance.

 For ratepayers who prefer a hard-copy, the CRC entry pass may be downloaded and printed at home.

 Cr Martin said by scanning the barcode, CRC staff will be able to log and record the number of visits per household electronically and residents can check their usage on the My Mundaring Online portal.

 Changes to hard copy CRC passes 

Residents signed up for a hard copy Rates notice will still receive a hard copy CRC Entry Pass with their Rates notice this year.

However, residents will notice their hard copy pass will no longer be required to be clipped at the entry to the landfill, with entry logged by a barcode.

Download and track usage via My Mundaring Online

Residents are encouraged to track their landfill load entries and access a number of other Shire services via the recently launched My Mundaring Online portal.

The introduction of electronic passes should reduce costs associated with printing passes and reduce the impact of paper usage on the environment.

Cr Martin encouraged residents to sign-up to the e-Rates program, stating that it was a benefit to the environment to cut down on paper usage, printing and postage cost and waste.

“I encourage residents to visit the Shire’s website to sign-up to the e-Rates program by Friday 5 August to receive their rates notices electronically this financial year.”
