 The Waste Management Facility Site Selection Study is now available for public review and feedback.

Please note NO specific site has been selected for the future waste facility. The purpose of this study and the meetings being held are to assist in initiating discussion with all community members on the process that needs to be undertaken to identify potential sites. The Study includes the methodology that will guide the project, the selection criteria used to identify to the broad areas of interest and the necessary next steps towards locating an appropriate site.

Waste collection is a critical service to the community and the depositing of waste in a landfill is currently required. While the Shire continues to consider alternatives to landfill, it remains essential to construct a new landfill site.

The Waste Management Site Selection Study identifies two geographical areas that have the greatest chance of providing a Waste Management Facility site that will be environmentally adequate to construct a best practice facility. The Study outlines the large number of variables that impact and influence the process, these will be discussed in detail with the community.

Community meetings are being held in locations outlined below during the week beginning 22nd March 2015. All interested parties are encouraged to attend a meeting to hear all the details and understand the process that must be undertaken. If you would like to complete a Site Selection Feedback Questionnaire or provide input please do not hesitate to contact the Shire on shire@esperance.wa.gov.au or 9071 0644.

The Site Selection Study is available on the link above or hard copies can be viewed at the Library or Shire Administration Building. Submissions can be made via email, fax or post with a closing date of Friday 17th April 2015.
