Binnaway Campground – Reopening of Amenities to the Public

In exciting news for the Binnaway Community the “Pumphouse Camping Ground” Amenities block is now open to the public for use and has a new Dump Ezy dump point for travelers.

After a period of closure the Binnaway Campground amenities are re-opened for use after the on-site waste water management system was replaced and improved. Included in the new system is the addition of a Dump Ezy dump point to accept toilet wastes from caravans and motor homes.

Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Denis Todd said “the new dump point is a welcome addition to the facility. It will boost usage numbers of the facility and encourage travelers to stop over and break their journey in Binnaway”.

“During 2018, Council closed the amenities after the old septic system failed as a result of misuse of the system with caravan toilet wastes being flushed down the toilets blocking and destroying the septic system”, said Cr Todd.

Cr Todd explained, “With this in mind and aiming to encourage travelers to Binnaway, Council has installed an aerated wastewater treatment system, capable of treating effluent to the highest standard which will allow the treated wastewater to water a designated grassed area in the campground. The dump point is located directly beside the toilets to ensure ease of use for camp-ground patrons.”

“This project received has been funding through the NSW Government Drought Communities Programme with $30,000 allocated to Binnaway Campground upgrades”, said Cr Todd.

Warrumbungle Shire Council appreciates the community’s support and patience during this time and hopes to see a thriving, busy camp-ground that appeals to the passing travelers and brings prosperity to the citizens of Binnaway over the coming months”, Cr Todd concluded.
