Re-opening Koorawatha Waste Facility


Following Council’s resolution at the Wednesday 26 October Council Meeting, Hilltops Council will implement actions to better operate rural waste facilities.


Council will be progressing plans to provide transfer stations at all rural waste facilities.

Council wishes to consult with communities affected by the endorsed changes to rural waste facilities.


Until then, we recognise that the Koorawatha Waste Facility has been closed for a prolonged period of time due to asbestos cleanup and we wish to reopen the facility on a trial basis.


From Tuesday 15 November, the Koorawatha tip will be reopened. The tip will operate under supervision and will be open each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8am to 12:30pm and 1pm to 2:30pm.


We will review these hours based on demand and as we progress the proposed upgrades to rural facilities.
