Cloncurry Shire Council wish to advise that there will be a change to operations, including opening hours and additional supervision at the Cloncurry Landfill located on Burke Developmental Road, Cloncurry. These changes will be effective as at the 21 April 2017.
The facility will be open during the following times:
- Weekdays (Monday to Friday): 8.00am – 12.00am and 1.00pm – 6.00pm
- Weekends (Saturday and Sunday): 8.00am – 12.00am and 1.00pm – 6.00pm
- Public Holidays: 8.00am – 12.00am (excluding Christmas Day)
All persons entering the site need to report to the site supervisor, they will then document the nature of the contents and amount of waste prior to providing direction to the appropriate disposal areas.
Council reminds residents and businesses that facility does not accept ANY LIQUID WASTES AND SEMI-LIQUID WASTES (i.e. cooking oil and hydrocarbons such as oily water and waste oils from vehicles). Direction for appropriate disposal of these wastes can be sought by contacting the Cloncurry Shire Council Administration office.
This change is a result of a directive from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection to improve environmental outcomes on the landfill site and will ensure Council continue to meet its environmental obligations.
Should you require any additional information in respect of this matter please contact the Cloncurry Shire Council Administration Office on 07 4742 4100.
