Calderdale residents can support the work to tackle climate change by opting to receive their council tax bills electronically. Calderdale Council is pledging to plant trees across the borough for every 1000 households that switch to ebilling before the end of March 2021.
Currently only 15% of Calderdale residents receive ebilling for their council tax. Receiving bills electronically reduces the financial and environmental impacts of producing and sending paper bills. The more residents that sign up, the more trees will be planted by the Council, furthering the environmental benefits of switching.
The additional trees planted will support natural flood management and improve air quality. As they will be native species, they will also help protect our natural habitats and the wealth of biodiversity they contain.
Ebilling is also the most convenient way to receive your council tax bill. Once registered, instead of issuing a traditional paper bill and sending it through the post, your bill will be sent electronically to your email address. Any other correspondence regarding your council tax account will also be sent in this way where possible.
