Changes to Ulamambri Transfer Station

From Saturday 31 October 2020 Ulamambri Transfer station will be able to take general household waste and recycling 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

“At the August Ordinary Council Meeting Council resolved to modify the operation of the Ulamambri Transfer Station by providing ‘holes in the wall’ for the public to dispose of household waste and recycling 24/7. The Ulamambri Transfer Station will be open and manned one-half day per week on Saturdays from 12noon to 4:00pm to allow larger waste items to be deposited at the facility,” Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan explained. 

“With the introduction of these new ‘holes in the wall’, that will be available at all times, the closure of the Ulamambri Transfer Station on a Wednesday will not impact the residents being able to drop of general waste and recycling,” said Cr Doolan. 

“The ‘holes in the wall’ have been installed in a number of the other Council transfer stations for residents to dispose of domestic waste and recyclables and have been very successful,” Cr Doolan explained. 

Residents are reminded that Council conduct a Kerbside Collection of both general waste and recycling. If residents in Ulamambri do not currently have their bins emptied by Council, they can make a request to Council to be included in the Kerbside Collection Service with the collection levy being added to the residential rates.

“Council undertook public consultation on the proposal to make changes to the operation of the Ulamambri Transfer Station in June 2020. All submissions were presented to Council at the August Council Meeting for consideration. I would like to thank everyone who submitted a written submission regarding the changes to the Ulamambri Transfer Station,” concluded Cr Doolan. 

Changes to the opening hours and access to the ‘holes in the wall’ will commence on Saturday, 31 October 2020.
