In mid-August Council will commence capping the Bora Ridge landfill in line with a capping plan approved by the NSW Environment Protection Authority.
The capping involves covering the landfill in a water-tight cap to seal the landfill from rain in an environmentally acceptable manner.
As the current waste transfer station sits on part of the area to be capped, and the site will be a construction zone, it will not be operating while capping works are occurring.
The last day of operation before the closure will be Saturday 10 August. The transfer station will be closed for around four months, weather permitting. The Evans Head Waste Transfer Station, Rappville Waste Transfer Station, and the Nammoona Waste & Resource Recovery Facility in Casino are available for receiving waste and recyclables.
We recognise these works can be an inconvenience to residents and businesses, and we thank you for your patience and understanding while this important project is being undertaken.
