Further investment announced for two WA waste management projects

2022 budget

The Western Australian Government will invest almost $370,000 towards two waste management projects in the Great Southern region of the state, to support the communities of Ravensthorpe and Katanning.

A weighbridge will be installed at Ravensthorpe to enable accurate, timely measurement and collection of data on the quantities and types of waste entering the landfill.

A new waste equipment shed in Katanning will be built to house high-value waste management assets such as machinery and equipment.

Over the past 10 years, the State Government has contributed more than $5 million to the Regional and Strategic Waste Management Approach Project across the shires of Jerramungup, Ravensthorpe, Gnowangerup, Katanning and Kent.

The project aims to improve the performance of waste management infrastructure throughout the shires, contributing to the safe and efficient functioning of the local communities.

Agricultural Region MLC Shelley Payne commended the Shires of Ravensthorpe and Katanning for their initiative on these waste management projects

“The responsible management of waste is important, not just for the day-to-day operations of our communities, but also to make sure we leave a smaller impact for the future,” Payne said.
