Public Notice - Cardboard crusher at the tip closed for maintenance

The cardboard compacting machine located at the Meru Waste Facility will remain closed for approximately two more weeks to complete required maintenance which cannot be undertaken while the machine is in operation.

Due to the age of the machine, some of the parts that require replacement, including safety guards and electrical isolation switches, must be fabricated locally and fitted.

During this time, all cardboard can continue to be taken to the Meru Waste Facility for disposal.  Residents can discard of their cardboard free of charge and commercial contractors will pay $10 per cubic metre, the same fee Cogman Recycling charges for cardboard disposal at the Tip Shop.
