Residential Household Waste

The Council has replaced the Tip Passes with a new Household Waste Service, which has been designed to reduce waste, promote correct waste disposal and household clean-up. 

Under the new Household Waste Service, fees and charges are waived for all Shire residents. Tip Passes will no longer be required for household waste disposal at the Shire’s waste facilities:

  • Coolgardie Waste Facility; and
  • Kambalda Transfer Station.

Residents will be able to make unlimited trips to the Shire’s waste facilities and deposit unlimited household waste.

The following table clarifies the waste categories that may be deposited for free and those for which there is a charge.
