Go Cashless

CASSOWARY COAST, WE'VE GONE CASHLESS!

As of Friday 1 July 2022, Cassowary Coast Regional Council is cashless.

This means that Council will no longer accept payments by cash or cheque at our Customer Service Centres and other Council run facilities.

Moving towards cashless provides safer ways for residents to conduct business with Council. Benefits include improved hygiene, reducing cash handling and improved security

You can still pay using EFTPOS, Visa, Mastercard and AMEX.

Rates can be paid in cash, by taking your rates notice to Australia Post.
