Council will not collect waste from business, commercial or industrial properties, schools or hospitals irrespective of location. The primary reason for this is that in most cases the volume, nature or type of waste produced by these types of properties will be greater than the service provided by Council can accommodate. That means that you will not be provided with the new bins when they are rolled out in December, nor will you be levied the annual waste charge.
All business, commercial or industrial properties, schools and hospitals will need to make their own arrangements for the collection and disposal of waste. Waste can be disposed of at Council's Waste Transfer Stations at Loxton, Waikerie and Moorook during their hours of operation.
