Security and safety improvements at transfer stations

The Muttama waste transfer station, along with Coolac, Nangus and Tumblong, will soon see the installation of electronic entry systems and upgraded CCTV equipment. The improvements are expected to result in a reduction in illegal dumping and provide a cleaner and safer facility for village residents.

Village waster transfer stations are in the process of being upgraded.

The local council says upgrades at the Muttama, Coolac, Nangus and Tumblong stations will improve safety and security at the sites with the installation of electronic entry systems, automated gates and upgraded CCTV equipment. 

“By implementing these changes residents will receive improved services through the user-friendly automatic gate entry system,” a council spokesperson said. 

“The improvement will bring an expected reduction in illegal dumping at these sites and will provide a cleaner and safer facility, ensuring supplied services meet residents’ needs.” 

The remote CCTV monitors the type and quantity of waste disposed at the transfer stations.

The new entry system is expected to be in place by mid-December.

Existing key holders will be required to fill out an application to exchange their existing registered key for an electronic tag at the council’s administration offices. Initial tags will be free of charge to authorised key holders.

New applications and replacement of lost or stolen tags will incur a fee.
