Opal Road Resource Recovery Centre Re-opened
From 1 August , Roxby Council will take control of the Resource Recovery Centre located on Opal Road.
The facility will once again be opened to the public for disposal and recycling of domestic waste. Weekly kerbside collection will remain unchanged for the community and the waste collection bins for all types of waste (see picture below) will now be located at the Opal Road facility.
In conjunction with the go-live and as council develops the process to suit the community’s needs and the facility capabilities, the waste solutions section on this website will be updated with the relevant information.The My Local Services App will point residents in the right direction including opening hours which will fluctuate to allow for a time study to be undertaken enabling the hours to be determined for what best suits the community's needs.
As with all new processes, it is expected there will be a teething period as the new way forward is worked out, and the community’s active participation and feedback would be appreciated.
Waste Disposal and Recycling options at the Opal Road Resource Recovery Centre
There are a number of collection zones that are now at the RRC for all the below types of waste and recycling.
Roxby Council introduced an integrated kerbside collection service in 2012, with general household waste, recycling and green organics collected. The kerbside waste and recycling service is a single driver operation that services the community according to the zoned areas.
