Advice to Compost Participations

The upgrade to our compost facility at the Carisbrook Transfer Station is progressing well. Works involve the extension of the compost storage areas and construction of a cover shed.

Due to delays in the construction process, our expected completion date of the upgrade has been extended and stock availability of compost will not be available until late June.

Council will honour Compost Participant vouchers for April, May and June. Once supply has returned to normal customers will be notified. To ensure that all customers are supplied their allocation, once production has resumed bag restrictions will apply.

Award for excellence

Central Goldfields Shire has received an Award for Excellence in the Innovation - Regional category for the Unsealed Roads Treatment Project on Possum Gully Road, Adelaide Lead.

The Awards recognise excellence in innovation, development, construction and management in public works while the Excellence in Innovation category acknowledges excellence in the implementation of areas that can be considered exceptional by traditional standards.
