The Tamala Park Waste Facility will in most circumstances remain open during days of hot and/or extreme weather conditions.
The MRC has being granted an exemption to operate during times when the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) has imposed Total Fire Bans and/or the City of Wanneroo, a Harvest and Vehicle Movement Ban. This exemption requires the MRC to operate under strict conditions to minimise any fire risk. The Tamala Park Waste Facility will therefore in most circumstances remain open during days of hot and/or extreme weather conditions. Should the Site Operations Manager, however, determine that the risks in operating be too great all or part of the site may be closed as required.
Previously the Tamala Park site was required to close its recycling drop off area and shop, as well as the transfer station during such bans but this is no longer the case.
