Wheel wash ready to roll
In line with best practice landfill management, Bass Coast Shire Council has installed a truck wheel wash unit at the Grantville Transfer Station.
This $60,000 project was recently completed as part of Council’s 2020/21 Capital Works Program.
The new unit will remove debris from the wheels and undercarriage of vehicles that visit the landfill site, prior to returning to public roads.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said that this was just one more way to make sure contaminants are stopped from entering the environment.
“The wheel wash is an effective solution to ensure dirt and waste do not leave the landfill site,” Cr Tessari said.
“Bass Coast’s beautiful environment is very important to Council and the community and this is just one more measure we can take to ensure it stays that way.”
