Landfill and Recycling

Fees & Charges 2018/19

The Shire has two Landfill and Recycling Centres. Each ratepayer receives a 12-month tip pass with their Shire rates to use at either of these facilities and new ratepayers will receive their tip pass in their Shire "Welcome Pack". This pass is to be used for household waste and recyclables ONLY - not bulk commercial waste. Please note that waste will not be accepted from outside the Shire of Chittering.

Policy on Litter and Illegal Dumping

The Shire encourages residents and visitors to help keep our natural environment clean and litter free. Littering is an offence under the Litter Act and the Shire’s Rangers will issue fines to offenders. People caught illegally dumping waste in bush land areas or on road verges will receive a $200 on the spot fine. Under the Litter Act they could also face prosecution and incur a fine of up to $1,000.

Residents with any concerns or enquiries can contact the Shire's Ranger on (08) 9576 4600 between the hours of 8.00am and 5.00pm seven days a week.
