**Updated 7 June 2021**

Following initial works in 2018 and public consultation through late 2019, you may have noticed some further changes at the Mingenew Tip over the past months. To improve its environmental management, control dumping of dangerous waste, and waste from outside the Shire, and better meet its legislative duties, the Shire will shortly be transitioning from the current landfill arrangement to a manned Transfer Station, similar to that now found in many of our neighbouring towns. The matter had been postponed due to TC Seroja, but is now back on track.

When will it start?

Monday 7 June 2021.

How will it operate?

The site will be staffed by Cleanaway, who manage local rubbish collection. Upon entry, you are required to visit the site shed and the staff member will provide you with directions for the disposal of your rubbish. There will be signage on site to assist.

What does this mean for opening hours?

As the site will be manned, opening hours will be restricted. Based on feedback from previous community surveys, the Shire will be adopting the following hours initially:

Monday:           Closed

Tuesday:          8am – 12pm

Wednesday:      1pm – 5pm

Thursday:          Closed

Friday:              8am – 12pm

Saturday:          9am – 12pm

Sunday:            9am – 12pm

As this is a new arrangement, we will monitor these hours and they may be reviewed in the future.

Will it cost anything?

Initially, no. The intent is to keep the use of the facility free for Mingenew residents and ratepayers. There may be charges introduced for non-resident and ratepayers to dump their rubbish in Mingenew.

Will all waste be accepted?

No. Due to the cost involved with disposal of asbestos and tyres, these items will no longer be permitted to be dumped.
