The new Waste Transfer Station at Kew was opened to public use in April 2017, replacing the old landfill at Dunbogan which reached capacity in late 2016.
Council secured approval for the new facility under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, and following a tender process for the $3.6 million works, awarded the construction contract to Commercial Project Group Pty Ltd at the July Council meeting.
Four potential options for a new waste management facility were considered, with concept designs and preliminary cost estimates developed for each potential site. After undertaking community engagement in June and July 2013 and preliminary assessment, Council identified land located north of Kew on Herons Creek Road as the preferred option.
Construction of this state of the art facility was designed to improve waste and recycling practices in the Camden Haven area. Upon completion the Dunbogan site was permanently closed and rehabilitation undertaken.
