Paying to dispose of your rubbish is now common at most refuse disposal sites in Western Australia.

Disposal of waste can be FREE or at a very minimal cost for Shire of Goomalling residents who separate their loads and leave them at the designated places at the disposal facility.

If you don’t want to separate your waste, pay the appropriate fee (as indicated below) at the gate for your mixed or contaminated load.

The fee structure encourages you to sort household rubbish prior to disposal to save money and reduce waste to landfill.

Fencing wire tangles up in our equipment and can do very severe and costly damage. Recyclers do not want to take it for the same reasons therefore it won't be accepted. Mesh such as chicken wire, if rolled tightly and compressed, will be accepted in small quantities.


Please find out about and use the recycling services provided in Goomalling by the Goomalling Lions Club and various local businesses and organisations.

You can leave recyclables such as motor vehicles; machinery; white goods such as (degassed) refrigerators, microwaves and washing machines; electronic waste such as computers and printers; and vehicle batteries at the designated areas at the Goomalling Refuse Facility.
