Council waste facilities

EARC operates a series of waste facilities in communities where no other viable Landfill facility is available.

Landfill and Resource Recovery Facilities (LRRF) currently operated by Council include:

LRRF - Galiwinku
LRRF - Milingimbi
LRRF - Ramingining
LRRF - Gapuwiyak
LRRF - Umbakumba (only dry waste accepted)
LRRF - Milyakburra

Council is currently installing remote solar monitoring cameras at all Council operated landfill sites.

All commercial waste loads taken to each of the listed LRRF must be reported. For additional information please contact:

Council promotes resource recovery whenever economically viable and best practice in all its LRRF sites.
In communities where a commercial Landfill Facility is accessible and viable for Council and the community to utilise, Council will utilise it, complying with its terms and conditions of use. At the present time these communities include Yirrkala, Gunyangara and Angurugu.

Scavenging at landfill sites

At all times scavenging is not permitted at any of Council’s landfill facilities by any person including but not limited to Council staff, contractors engaged by Council and the general public unless specifically authorised to do so. Scavenging includes salvaging, receiving or removing any item or material that has been accepted at the landfill site for disposal or recovery.
