Council Mail is an economic way for local councils to communicate with their residents through mail.

What is Council Mail?
Council Mail is a service that gives local councils the ability to send council letters to council areas and ware boundaries at a lower rate.



What qualifies for Council Mail?

  • Minimum of 5000 semi-addressed articles per lodgement
  • Articles can be delivered in week 3 or 4 of any given month, excluding December
  • Articles can be enveloped or plastic wrapped


Benefits of Council Mail
Targeting Ability – deliver specific communications to only those residents who should receive them.

Reduce wastage and increase reach – delivered by Australia Post with other addressed mail, council communication will not be among other distributed material such as flyers.

Increase resident engagement and awareness – 77% of people say they read mail from their local council.


Council Mail allows you to send articles up to 125g in weight and 5mm thickness.


How to start using Council Mail
1. Input file – to use Council Mail you must provide an input file to Australia Post that lists all delivery points (addresses) for the mail out.
2. Output file – subject to input files being in the required format and the quality of the address data in the files, Australia Post will provide an output file that contains completed sequenced address data.
3. Reports – in addition to the output file, you will also receive a mailing list sort report, a delivery centre report, a data quality report and an invalid address details report. These will assist in the preparation and lodgement process, and aim to improve address data for future lodgements.
4. Lodge articles – Council Mail must be lodged on a local council’s account number at the delivery centre displayed in the delivery centre report. Lodgement specifics need to be confirmed with your account manager prior to lodgement.

Everyday, someone in Australia suffers a spinal cord injury. From workplace incidences, to road and water accidents or extreme sports, the event of permanent paralysis is always unexpected and frequently preventable.

PBF Australia (The Paraplegic Benefit Fund) was established to create greater awareness of these risks, with the aim of reducing the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury in Australia. Quickmail are proud to be members of Paraplegic Benefit Fund Australia.

Yesterday Quickmail had a presentation from Symon and Katie. On behalf of the staff at Quickmail, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Your visit has no doubt left a strong impression with us all and left us thinking of ways to aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work, on the road and at play.

Some key statistics surrounding spinal cord injuries include the following:
- 3 spinal cord injuries per week in WA
- Approximately 141 spinal cord injuries per year in WA
- 46% of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle related
- 34% of spinal cord injuries are from falls
- 11% of spinal cord injuries is an “other” category (i.e. violence, being hit by objects, jerked off a horse, etc.)
- 9% of spinal cord injuries are Aquatic related
- Average age of a spinal cord injury is 43 primarily due to slips, trips and falls but the common age bracket for young adults is 15-24 particularly in males.
