Waste Management

Waste Management

MacDonnell Shire Council provides waste management across our 13 communities.

Nearly all sites are appropriately fenced, with personnel correctly seperating the waste into white goods, batteries, tyres, steel and other prescribed and recyclable waste out of the land fill trenches.

All sites have functioning plant for the collection of domestic waste, and back up equipment was supplied where there were any plant failures.

The roll out of steel stands for green rubbish bins has been an effective means of reducing spillage and therefore the littering of communities by household rubbish.  Each community has at least two domentis waste collections per week, some have three.

On average each Service Delivery Centre is supplied with a vehicle and trailer or compactor for waste collection and a minimum of two staff spend 1.5 days per week collecting the waste and managing the waste facility.
