Ingham Automatic Weather Station Online

Council is pleased to announce that the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) recently completed the installation of a fully Automated Weather Station (AWS) at the Ingham Aerodrome.

Local contractor Keita Services constructed the siteworks with BoM to install the weather station equipment.

The AWS will give you the current temperature, apparent temperature (feels like temperature), relative humidity, dew point, wind speed and direction, highest gusts within a 30 minute period, rainfall for the last 24 hours (from 9.00am) and barometric pressure.

The AWS collects data every minute which is forwarded to Melbourne central data systems. The webpage will update every 30 minutes, unless special conditions occur.

To view the latest weather observations please visit the Bureau of Meteorology website, Latest Weather Observations for Ingham Aerodrome www.bom.gov.au/products/IDQ60801/IDQ60801.94004.shtml.

Never Bin Your Batteries – Drop Off Locations

Have a pile of regular household and rechargeable batteries and not sure what to do with them?

Join the millions of Aussies recycling their used batteries and take them to one of the many battery drop off points located around the Hinchinbrook Shire.

You will find these at both Woolworths and Coles, Canegrowers Mitre 10, and most public Council facilities, including landfill and transfer stations.

  • Batteries left around the house or thrown in general waste or recycling bins:
  • Can be dangerous to small children who may swallow them;
  • Cause huge environmental issues by leaching toxic materials into landfills;
  • Pose a fire danger to households and waste services including trucks and recycling centres; and
  • Are wasted, as 95% of a battery can be recycled and made into new products and other batteries.

Go to https://bcycle.com.au/ to find safety information and drop off locations.
