Council has begun Landfill Capping works at the Porepunkah Transfer Station.
These works will include the replacement of the existing clay capping with a geosynthetic clay liner over old landfill waste to meet the EPA’s requirements of Best Practice Environmental Management guidelines.
To support these crucial construction works there will be changed opening hours and accepted materials at the Porepunkah Transfer Station from Monday, 12 December 2022 to late Spring 2023.
From Monday, 12 December 2022, the following materials will not be accepted:
Due to delays in soil testing results at various stages of the capping works project, Porepunkah Transfer Station will remain under the current closure arrangements until late Spring 2023.
Our team recognises that not being able to dispose of additional green waste during this time may be a challenge for many in our community. We are working on an alternative drop off arrangement for green waste during the extended closure and will communicate these via our Facebook page, website and the local paper once they are confirmed.
The Porepunkah Transfer Station will continue to be open on weekends – Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2pm.
