Landfill Improvements Portland & Wallerawang Waste Facilities

 

 Grant funding provides added security at Council’s rural landfills

There are some noticeable changes now visible at Portland & Wallerawang Waste Facilities, including the construction of fencing around the perimeters of the facilities and the installation of CCTV at the entrance of each facility.

These improvements are possible through grant funding from the NSW Government under the ‘Waste Less Recycle More Initiative.’ Lithgow City Council Mayor, Stephen Lesslie said “the initiative by the NSW Government has allowed Council to undertake improvements such as new fencing at two of our rural waste facilities”.

The improvements have helped prevent unauthorized access,   contain windblown litter, helped reduced illegal dumping within in the facilities, limited the contamination of stockpiles and improved resource recovery.
