Municipal Solid Waste and Recycling
Alexandrina Council in conjunction with the City of Victor Harbor, District Council of Yankalilla and Kangaroo Island Council have combined waste resources to form the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority (FRWA).
The Authority is now responsible for Councils waste operations including the collection of kerbside waste. A three bin domestic collection service is in place for urban areas and a two bin system in rural areas to encourage and support recycling. New initiatives for recycling and reuse are always being developed so contact the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority for the latest news.
Community Wastewater Management Systems for Effluent Disposal
A reticulated Community Wastewater Management System (CWMS) provides for the collection and carriage of septic tank effluent or sewerage by either gravity flow or by pumping either with positive or negative pressures (vacuum), to a treatment facility that is owned, operated and maintained by the Council, or other agency. Reuse solutions are in place for the utilisation and reuse of treated effluent water.
Onsite Wastewater Management
Some properties in the Alexandrina Council are serviced by either Council run Communal Waste Management System (CWMS), privately managed CWMS, SA Water Sewer (only some properties in Hayborough) all other properties require onsite waste management. Council approval is required for any alteration or installation of any waste control system that is not covered by SA Water.
