Waste Management

Ratepayers are reminded that collection of rubbish over and above that in mobile garage bins be restricted to a single secured plastic bag or box secured against spillage, not exceeding 20 kg. Any cardboard boxes for collection must be collapsed and securely tied together. Any bags in excess of this allowance will not be collected by Council staff.

It should also be noted that Council staff will not remove rubbish from households where a mobile garbage bin is not used (ie where just plastic bags are left for collection.

Council is presently operating a waste oil disposal facility, located at the Council's Works Depot. The waste oil is then transferred to the Grassy Swimming Pool. Council is requesting persons wishing to dispose of waste oil to contact Council on 6462 9000 to arrange a date and time.

Do You Have Unwanted Chemicals on your Property?

We all want a cleaner, safer environment to live in. The disposal of unwanted toxic chemicals can impact detrimentally upon the environment and public health. The community on King Island have an opportunity to dispose of these unwanted chemicals from agricultural and commercial livestock production. ChemClear is a national industry funded initiative designed as a cost effective way to collect and dispose of unused and unwanted currently registered chemicals. Any formulation is accepted, including flowables, granules and powder consistencies.
