Rubbish Tip

The Moora rubbish tip is manned by a tip controller. People disposing of rubbish at the tip will be required to present a tip ticket to access the tip.

Tip tickets are available to be purchased from the Shire of Moora Office and Gull Service Station.

Each tip ticket will allow the disposal of one cubic metre or part thereof of any type of waste, apart from hazardous waste such as asbestos, and will need to be given to the tip controller manning the site.

If you have over 1 cubic metre of waste then you will need the requisite number of tickets ie. 10 cubic metres of waste will require 10 tip tickets to be presented and so on.

Recyclables and green waste can be disposed of free of charge at the tip.
