We are constructing a waste transfer station at Kleinton as the existing landfill waste facility has reached capacity. Landfill operations on site will cease and a new waste transfer station will be built on the existing landfill site.
Waste Transfer Stations are a cleaner, neater and tidier waste solution. Waste is stored on pavement, and transported to landfill locations offsite, reducing the extent of odour, dust, and animal/rodent control required. Litter prevention controls are put in place to contain windblown litter from the facility and prevent it from entering drains.
Waste Transfer Stations reduce the impacts to the community associated with landfill activity as well as ensuring environmental compliance.
At this stage waste drop-off practices remain unchanged and the facility is maintaining normal operating hours. We will keep stakeholders informed as the project advances.
Design commenced late 2017.
To be confirmed.
