The Lajamanu waste facility has had a major upgrade over the past 18 months.  The whole complex has been fenced, a new disposal pit excavated, old rubbish cleaned up, public drop off bays established and recycling areas set up.

 

All waste is sorted prior to disposal in the pits minimising the risk of environmental contamination and extending the life of the pits.

 

A special area has been established for the storage of car bodies which allows for those vehicles to be stored safely while still be accessible to the owners for parts recycling.

 

The entire site is now clean and safe for council staff and the general public to use

 

“Our Council is a key partner in the Central Australian regional waste management program which is implementing best practice methods for remote waste facilities,”
 President Adrian Dixon explained.

 

 

“The local civil works team in Lajamanu has implemented Council’s best practice model to a tee, through hard work and good planning. Council is very proud of the team, as are the residents of Lajamanu.”
