Milvale Waste Facility Closed

During an inspection at the Milvale Waste Facility on Saturday 27 May 2023, remnants of asbestos containing material, which had been burnt, were discovered in and around the site. Council has made the decision to temporarily close the facility for the safety of residents and staff. The facility will remain closed until further notice.

Hilltops Council will follow the directions of the NSW Environment Protection Authority, SafeWork NSW and a licensed assessor for the remediation of the site.

Council advises residents to take their waste to the Victoria Street Facility, located in Young, until a temporary waste transfer station has been put in place. Council will advise residents once a temporary waste transfer station is available.
