Council has continued to implement responsible waste management practices at the Kimba Refuse Depot following the audits and inspections by both the Mutual Liability Scheme and the Environment Protection Agency.
The main change resulting from these inspections and audits has been the introduction of restricted and supervised access. These are a condition of Council's licence and must be adhered to, despite the concerns voiced by residents and ratepayers. It must be realised that it is better to have restricted and supervised access, than to have no access, which would be the result if Council's licence were revoked.
A dump fee of $85.00 for Kimba residents and $50.00 for rural residents and $150 for businesses. Council has purchased a Cardboard Baler for recycling newspaper and cardboard. There is a kerbside collection every second Wednesday for residents.
