The Why

At the Shire of Coolgardie proper waste management is serious business because it is vital to keeping our community healthy

Proper waste management means we are protecting our country, water, animals and people from toxic or dangerous chemicals and disease and we need you to play your part.

We are an extremely remote location and our landfill sites service a small population which means different waste rules apply compared with large metropolitan sites.

So what’s the difference?

This means you must take extreme care in following our site plan and disposing of waste in the correct location.

Controlled burning of waste

As a remote region we are unable to bring in the heavy equipment that we would need to impact and cover waste. Instead, the Shire runs controlled burning of green waste only. 

This means there are particular rules to follow depending on the cycle stage of the controlled burning.

  • The Shire provides notification a week before the burn on our website.
  • To reduce wind-blown litter, keep the tip face small.
  • Only dump your load when you see existing exposed waste.
  • Doing your part  is keeps Coolgardie clean.
  • Commercial users of our sites bring in the largest quantities of waste.
  • How you use the site can be the difference between what meets occupational health and safety standards and one that poses risks.
  • Please help us keep our sites clean and hazard free, for our communities, the environment and for you.

Here are the 6 items of Personal Protective Equipment that you are REQUIRED to wear while on our site

  • Long-sleeved and legged high-visibility garments or high-visibility vests over other long-sleeved and legged garments
  • Steel-toed safety boots, with puncture-proof soles where the person may walk on waste deposits
  • Safety glasses
  • Gloves

E-Waste - What is it?

E-waste is any electrical or electronic equipment that’s been discarded. This includes working and broken items that are thrown in the garbage or donated to a charity reseller like Goodwill. Often, if the item goes unsold in the store, it will be thrown away. E-waste is particularly dangerous due to toxic chemicals that naturally leach from the metals inside when buried.

Scrap Metal

Scrap metal is recyclable and takes up valuable space in our landfill cell. Scrap metals include a number of materials such as aluminium, brass, copper, stainless steel, cast iron, lead, zinc and nickel. We take all types of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Please ensure your Scrap metal is segregated from your load and placed at the location indicated on the map.

White Goods

Many White Goods contain harmful gases which need to be degassed by a qualified contractor before they can be recycled. Please place all degassed white goods at the location indicated on the map.

Oil Dump

Disposing of used oil the wrong way has the potential to pollute land, water and wildlife. All used oils including engine oil, machine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant oils and quenching oils, are classified as Prescribed Industrial Wastes. As a result, it is illegal to dump waste oil into landfill or waterways. It is also illegal to send used oil filters to landfill. Please place all oils in the oil dump located on the map. 

Gas Cylinders

Gas cylinders should not be placed in your waste bin as they may explode if crushed. Before drop off please ensure that the cylinders are degassed. Place them at the location indicated on the map.

Building Rubble

This material will be used to assist compaction and rehabilitation of the site.

Please segregate clean concrete, bricks and rubble only and place in the location indicated on the map.

DO NOT include construction waste such as timber or plaster. These are to be disposed of in the general waste cell.

Commercial General Waste

Please place all residual waste in the general waste cell after all other indicated waste types have been removed.  

(Hazard) The Shire uses controlled burning as a management practice at this site in accordance with the Waste Management Guidelines for small communities in WA.
