Second Free Dump Day for Whyalla

Bins.jpgThe Whyalla Council are offering a second free dump day this weekend as a part of the national Clean Up Australia Day activities.

Residents will be able to dump household rubbish for free at the Mount Laura Waste and Resource Recovery Centre this Saturday.

Council CEO Chris Cowley says the free dump days would also be a big saving for residents.

He says with these two free dump days, there should be no need for anyone to illegally dump and they continue to urge people to think about not littering or dumping around the city.

The resource centre will be open between 10am and 4pm but the gates will be closed at 3pm with only the cars on the service road allowed in from that point to allow processing before 4pm.

Residents can dump loads up to the size of an 8x5 trailer but doesn’t include hazardous waste and is not open to commercial operators.

All additional items (apart from gas bottles and hazardous waste) are also free including mattresses and tyres. Go to http://www.whyalla.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?u=839 for more information on additional items.
