Located between the suburbs of Clarkson and Kinross, this site has been operating for the last 12 years. Two thirds of the site is now filled with only one pit left to fill. The rubbish is covered daily by limestome to help compact the rubbish and reduce any odours and to prevent birds taking rubbish away.
Due to landfill sites of the future being located outside the metropolitan area, recycling is now the focus through education.
Next to the shop, you may drop off your unwanted items such as paints, used cooking oils (which is converted to biodiesel for vehicles onsite), cardboard and mattresses. The mattresses are sent to a company for use in mine sites for soaking up oils.
Used chemicals, petrol, oils and toxic cleaners are also collected and stored onsite until disposed of correctly. Electronic goods are sent over east to be recycled through separating their parts. Gas bottles and fire extinguishers are also recycled.
