Red Hill Waste Management Facility

The EMRC operates the Red Hill Waste Management Facility on behalf of six member councils - Town of Bassendean, City of Bayswater, City of Belmont, City of Kalamunda, Shire of Mundaring and City of Swan.

The facility is located about 12 kilometres north-east of Midland, on the south side of Toodyay Road and east of the Darling escarpment.

The waste facility uses modern techniques and principles of sanitary landfill design and operation, including leachate collection and methane gas capture.

The EMRC is constructing new landfill cells at the Red Hill Waste Management Facility that requires the removal of lateritic caprock via a series of controlled detonations (blasting).

The next blast  is due to take place on Friday 12 April 2019 at 4.30pm. It is anticipated that the program will take approximately eight weeks to complete with two to three blasts per week totalling 18 blasts to complete the project. Weather permitting, the blasting will occur from 4:30pm Monday to Saturday. A notice board at the facility’s entrance will provide details of the next blast.

As per the previous blasting campaign carried out between January and March 2018, all blasts will adhere to the restrictions set out by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) and will be monitored by the contractor with all results recorded.

For ongoing public safety, residents should be aware that during each blast the Red Hill Waste Management Facility will be closed and secured.
