Council would like to advise residents that the following services are temporarily discontinued at the Warrens Hill Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre, effective immediately:
- DrumMuster collection;
- Tyre disposal; and
- Tip Shop services.
These changes are due to concerns of the stability of the embankment around the old landfill cell above the location of these suspended services.
In the interests of public safety, Council has introduced an exclusion zone around the toe and batter of the slope.
As residents are aware, Council is required to meet environmental licensing conditions for the management of the Warrens Hill Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre and has been undertaking a landfill capping program. For reasons yet to be determined, the cap has breached and resulted in slope slippage occurring.
Council is investigating and determining remediation actions required.
Council advises community members to access the DrumMuster and Tip Shop services provided at the Halifax Resource Recovery Centre.
Council regrets any inconvenience that these changes will cause the community, however the safety of the public must always be paramount and the public’s understanding would be appreciated.
