Council is making changes to how it operates the Waste Transfer Station and Landfill Site to meet Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) regulations that require the recording of waste amounts and types, and vehicles entering the landfill site.
Access to the Landfill Site is currently granted by appointment, due to the boom gate being damaged recently.
The new arrangements will see the gate to the Landfill Site relocated closer to the Transfer Station and it will remain locked. Access can be gained during the new opening hours by reporting to the staff member on duty at the Waste Transfer Station to ensure waste is disposed of in the correct area.
The Waste Transfer Station will be staffed during the new opening hours on weekdays, with a late night on Friday, and unstaffed on weekends. Residents wishing to dispose of material at the weekends should leave it in the correct signposted place in the Waste Transfer Station.
The new opening hours are as follows:
Monday 12noon - 4.00pm
Tuesday 7.30am - 4.00pm
Wednesday 9.30am - 4.00pm
Thursday 7.30am - 4.00pm
Friday 7.30am - 6.00pm
Saturday 7.30am - 6.00pm
Sunday 7.30am - 6.00pm
The new opening hours will be effective from 27th August 2018 and members of the community will be informed through Shire Snippets, and Council's communications.
