Rehabilitation of Old Tip to Commence

The former tip at Angus Place is set to be rehabilitated with tenders now being called by Lithgow Council.

The former Council tip at Angus Place is set to be rehabilitated with tenders being called for its final rehabilitation. This will see the old landfill brought to a final state with a minimal environmental footprint.

Lithgow Mayor Maree Statham said today “The Angus Place tip has been closed to land filling for several years now and it is now appropriate carry out it’s final rehabilitation.  It still continues as a waste and recycling transfer station which Council has plans to upgrade in the near future.”

The rehabilitation work will include earthworks, drainage, re-vegetation and capping.  The final landform will be free draining and eventually encourage the re-introduction of native fauna.

“Council takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously and plans to eventually close and rehabilitate all of its small rural tips and replace them with more environmentally sustainable transfer stations” concluded Mayor Statham.

Interested contractors may view the tender documents on the Tenderlink site, www.tenderlink.com/Lithgow.  Tenders close on 10 July 2015.
