Waste Management

Waste Collection

The Shire of Carnamah contracts the services of Veolia to provide weekly rubbish removal for all townsite lots.

Rubbish removal is carried out each Monday morning in Eneabba and Tuesday morning in Carnamah. Bins need to be in place by no later than 6.00am.

Bins should be positioned within one metre of the kerb or edge of bitumen, with the wheels positioned away from the kerb or road.

Bins are to be kept in good order. Bins that are split, have broken lid hinges or are otherwise unserviceable need to be repaired or replaced.

Care of Bins

  • Clean the bin as required
  • Store the bin behind the building line of the property when it is not out for collection
  • Do not dispose of liquid, oils and solvents in the bin
  • Take all reasonable care to ensure bins are not stolen, damaged or misused
  • Do not over-load the bin
  • Generally the content of a bin should not exceed 70kg
  • Bins should not be loaded with heavy items or with excessively heavy contents such as large machinery parts, rubble, bricks, soil or the like

Recycling

The Shire of Carnamah in conjunction with the Lions Club of Carnamah operates a recycling centre on the corner of Carnamah-Eneabba Road and Railway Avenue.

The following items may be left at the yard in the areas indicated:

  • Car batteries
  • Oil

Aluminium cans may be left in the collection bins at the 'Lions Den' in King Street (opposite the School) or at the Carnamah Rubbish Tip.

Metal recycling

All metal material, including car bodies and white goods may be left at the metal yard. Follow the signs past the recycling yard heading south on Railway Avenue off the Carnamah - Eneabba Road.

**** Please do not leave wire at the recycling yard or the Shire tips.

Drum Muster

drumMUSTER is the National program for the collection and recycling of eligible non-returnable crop production and animal health product chemical containers from manufacturers participating in the Industry Waste Reduction Scheme (IWRS).

Containers must be cleaned properly and drained inside and out (including threads and caps). There must be no visible chemical residue and they must be eligible for drumMuster

A collection day is held once a year, generally in late August in Carnamah. drumMUSTER is co-ordinated by the Carnamah District High School P&C.

The nominated collection day for 2017 will be advised once known.
