New Waste Transfer Station for Frogmore - 18 August 2015

Media Release - New Waste Transfer Station for Frogmore

Boorowa Council has commenced the process of planning for a new waste transfer station for Frogmore similar to the one recently commissioned at Rugby which will replace the village tip.

“The old tip has well and truly reached its capacity and with changes to environmental requirements Council is moving to establish the new facility that will see waste transferred to the Boorowa Landfill site” said Councils General Manager Anthony McMahon.

Council have been successful in securing up to 70% funding from the NSW Environmental Trust as part of the NSW EPA’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy to remediate the old tip and establish the new waste transfer station.

Council is now seeking to engage with the village community on plans for the new facility and will be holding a community meeting.

“Council representatives will be at the Frogmore Hall at 7pm on Tuesday 25 August to discuss the closure of the tip and construction of the waste transfer station and strongly encourage the community to come along and find out more” said Mr McMahon

Council encourages all users and/or those impacted by the proposed facility to attend and participate in the information session to positively influence the investigation and design.
