Private Works/Rubbish Collection

Private Works

Council plant may be hired by arrangement to undertake private works if it does not affect the Shires own works programme. Please contact the Manager of Works and Services to discuss this on (08) 9883 4999.

Rubbish Collection

Household waste is collected on Tuesdays from residents within townsites (Boddington and Ranford) and from properties that are on the refuse vehicle route.

Council does conduct a bulk kerbside pick up in conjunction with the Tidy Towns Competition judging. The date is advertised in both Council Capers and the Boddington Newsletter.

Refuse Disposal Site

The Boddington Refuse Disposal Site is located off Robins Road, 6 kms from town.

Unless a tip pass is valid, charges in accordance with current fees and charges are applied for depositing rubbish at the Refuse Disposal Site. One tip pass entitles you to deposit one cubic metre of rubbish

Should a local business or individual wish to obtain access to the Refuse Site, outside of these regular hours, staff can, by appointment, arrange for the access by paying a Council fee of $78 per hour. It is anticipated that this service would only be required for special occasions and not for regular use.

Recycling

Council, with support from the local mining companies, operates a commingled recycling service located on Johnstone Street.

Materials that can be deposited include glass, paper products, aluminium and steel cans and plastics with either a 1, 2 or 3 symbol on the bottom of the container. The bins are not designed for removal of normal household waste.

E-Waste Recycling

A skip bin is provided for the recycling of E-Waste at the Boddington Refuse site.

We encourage residents to place all E-Waste into this bin rather than dump this material. This service is free of charge to all residents.

Please see the list of items that can be recycled via the E-Waste recycling collection point at the Boddington Refuse site by clicking here.
 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Vehicle batteries are recycled separately at the tip. 
  • Batteries from electronic appliances can be recycled via a recycling bin at the Shire office.
  • Mobile phone batteries and such like can be recycled via the e-waste collection.
