Disposal of Contaminated Waste and Asbestos Disposal of Contaminated Waste and Asbestos

Regulated wastes (as defined in Schedule 7 of the Environmental Protection Regulation 1998), or wastes contaminated with regulated waste, can only be disposed of at Warrens Hill Waste Management Facility.  The Department of Environmental and Resource Management [DERM] regulates the transport of Regulated Waste, and you are advised to inform Council 24 hours prior to the transport and disposal of the regulated waste.  This notification allows Council to advise you of EPA requirements and organise an appropriate disposal location at the landfill.
