Mullewa Waste Transfer Station opens

Published on Friday, 4 November 2016 at 12:00:00 AM

The new Mullewa Waste Transfer Station featuring designated areas to dump general waste, green waste, scrap metal and tyres was officially opened today.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the transfer station will make it easier for the community to dispose of rubbish whilst enabling the City to efficiently manage Mullewa’s waste.

“The new facility makes it really easy to sort and dump waste,” he said.

“Disposing of general waste is simple. All members of the community have to do is drive up the ramp, park in front of the general waste bins and throw their rubbish into these containers whilst scrap metal, tyres and green waste can be unloaded directly into the designated areas.”

The bins and waste collected in the designated areas are then transferred to the Meru Waste Facility where general waste is properly disposed of and scrap metal, tyres and green waste are recycled.

“Waste is a valuable resource that can be recovered and recycled which not only reduces landfill and the use of raw materials, it protects our environment,” said Mayor Van Styn. 

All waste management facilities, including unmanned sites, are required to comply with industry standards set by the Department of Environmental Regulation. 

“Licensing permits are becoming stricter and compliance plays a major role in landfill management,” Mayor Van Styn said.

“Transforming the Mullewa Tip to a Waste Transfer Station ensures the City can continue to provide a fully compliant and top class waste management facility to the Mullewa Community.”
