Townsite Rubbish Collection

The Shire provides a 140L bin kerbside collection service for the townsite of Corrigin as well as a recycing service. Bins are emptied each Monday morning and residents are advised to place their bins with the wheels away from the kerb the evening before collection.

Recycling

In May 2004 Council commenced a kerbside recycling service also with Avon Waste. Your 240L recycling bin (yellow lid) will be collected on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month (if there are 5 Mondays in any one month, recycling will not be collected on the fifth Monday).

Information on what is allowed to be placed into the recycling bins is available from the shire office.

Bins for new dwellings or replacements can be ordered through the shire and any cost related to the repair or replacement of a bin is the residents responsibility.

If you would like to order a new bin, please contact the Rates Officer on (08) 9063 2203 or shire@corrigin.wa.gov.au.

Regional Waste Facilities

The Shire of Corrigin has worked with the Shires of Kondinin, Kulin and Narembeen to establish a regional waste facility which has replaced the existing landfill sites in each of the towns. The new regional waste facility is centrally located in the Shire of Kondinin. The Corrigin landfill site is currently being converted to a transfer station which will encourage the separation of waste and increased recycling.

DrumMuster

DrumMuster is a program set up to collect cleaned chemical drums for processing to enable reuse of the materials the drums are made from. More information on this program including what drums are eligible and the cleanliness standard required can be found at www.drummuster.com.au.

The Shire is a signatory to the DrumMuster program and along with the Apex Club runs approximately two collections at the beginning and end of the year. Approved drums can be dropped off at the Waste Transfer Station, Brookton Highway by appointment.

If you wish to make a booking for the drum collection, please contact the Shire Office for an appointment.
