Solid Waste Asset Management Plan

The purpose of the Solid Waste Asset Management Plan is to ensure that solid waste assets are operated and maintained in a sustainable and cost effective manner, and that they provide the required level of service for present and future customers.

Levels of service are driven by customer expectations, compliance with statutory requirements and Council policies.

Council ensures that residual waste generated by residential properties is collected weekly on a user pays basis, provides a recycling service to residential properties and schools free of charge and receives domestic hazardous waste, refuse and separated green waste at the Pascoe Street Transfer Station.

Council manages $7.5mil of solid waste assets on behalf of the community. These assets are mainly associated with the York Valley landfill and Pascoe Street Transfer Station.

The solid waste activity is basically debt free and all activities are funded from landfill charges, transfer station charges, Ministry for the Environment Waste Levy contributions and grants.
