Free Dump Days for Whyalla Residents

clean.jpgWhyalla Council is stepping in to help with Clean up Australia Day by offering residents two free dump days next month.

Residents will be able to dump household rubbish for free at the Mount Laura Waste and Resource Recovery Centre on Saturday, March 2 and Saturday, March 16 this year.

This includes loads up to the size of an 8x5 trailer but doesn’t include hazardous waste and is not open to commercial operators.

Council CEO Chris Cowley says the free dump days would also be a big saving for residents.

Community groups are encouraged to run a community clean-up day with the Whyalla Council happy to support and provide free disposal of the rubbish collected. Sign up your group HERE

General household rubbish and green waste will be accepted on the day with inspections still in place to ensure waste is not contaminated. The resource centre will be open between 10am and 4pm but the gates will be closed at 3pm with only the cars on the service road allowed in from that point to allow processing before 4pm.
