2.1.15 Waste Management Areas Example 1

Location of Example: 149°45'19" East, 34°45'08" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Example 1 is a Rubbish Tip
  • Simple rubbish tips have areas of cleared land, piles of rubbish and an entry gate or building for the control of the passage, and type, of refuse allowed into the tip.
  • A larger rubbish tip may be more sophisticated and include such entities as additional support buildings, weigh bridges, compositing heaps (where green waste is converted into commerical fertilizer), other recycling facilities and methane extraction power generators.
Regional Considerations:
  • Generally occur within or near populated centres.
