Household Hard Waste - Sunday 28 April

10 April 2019

Members of the Naracoorte Lucindale community are invited to dispose of household hard waste at no cost at the Naracoorte Waste Transfer Station on Sunday 28 April between 8.00am and 4.00pm.

On Sunday 28 April between 8.00am and 4.00pm, the Naracoorte Waste Transfer Station will be open for members of the Naracoorte Lucindale community to dispose of household hard waste at no cost to the individual.

 

As the Waste Transfer Station will be busy, this day should not be used to dispose of waste that can be disposed of free of charge all year, this includes batteries, oil and steel such as whitegoods – washing machines, dryers, ovens, stoves and refrigerators and freezers that have been degassed, as well as sheets of iron and guttering, air conditioners, small items of scrap metal and hot water systems.

 

In addition, this day should not be used to dispose of items that will not be accepted free of charge including green and putrescible waste, asbestos (an appointment is requires to dispose of asbestos) and business or industrial waste.

 

EnviroTec as the operator of the Naracoorte Waste Transfer Station will be onsite to ensure that only acceptable hard waste items are disposed of.  To ensure that the day runs smoothly and efficiently it is important that your load be sorted with similar items together and e-waste on top.  The more sorted your load the quicker it will be to unload.

  • Furniture – tables, chairs, wardrobes, beds and mattresses
  • Floor coverings (up to 2 metre lengths)
  • Timber off cuts, including pallets (up to 2 metre lengths)
  • Dismantled clothes lines
  • Blinds and window coverings
  • Bikes and toys
  • Lawn mowers
  • Poly rainwater tanks
  • TVs and e-waste (as it is unloaded first place on top of your load)
  • Household quantities of bricks, rocks, dirt, pavers, concrete and building materials
  • Dry paint

 

In the instance of other waste being delivered normal rates will be charged as listed in Council’s fees and charges guide.

Illegal dumping is the deliberate littering of large items or quantities of waste onto private or public land rather than the appropriate disposal of these items at the Naracoorte Waste Transfer station or other places that accept recyclable items. 

 

Illegal dumping is an ongoing and visible problem in the district.  Council plays a crucial part in managing and preventing illegal dumping. 

 

The Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act give councils and the public greater powers when it comes to spotting and prosecuting people who choose to illegally dump rubbish.  The Act also introduces higher fines for illegal dumping particularly for the illegal dumping of asbestos.
