Waste & Recycling

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 waste management fee of $140 is paid by Kimba township residents.  The new Eastern Eyre Waste Management in partnership with District Councils of Cleve and Franklin Harbour visits Kimba every Thursday to pick up residents every day waste, and every second Thursday is recycling.

Please see attached document of what you can and can not recycle: Recycling
