Ian Street Playground, Mount Compass

Council has recently taken ownership of the reserves playground. The playground equipment has been assessed and is no longer compliant and has been deemed unsafe for use.  We are therefore preparing the site to remove the existing equipment and structures.

Preparation is underway to commence this demolition work, bunting around the playground equipment is in place for community safety until the works can be completed.

The bunting may be in place for some time and ask that the demolition works area that has been sectioned off is observed and not for public access.

Alternative playground and reserve areas are available in Mount Compass at the following locations:

Public Toilets – Cadell St, Goolwa

Commencing Wednesday, 1 April 2020, the public toilet at the rose garden off Cadell Street, Goolwa will be closed to the public to allow Council’s contractors to complete painting and maintenance of the facilities.

Fencing and signs will be place. Toilets located nearby include Cadell Street, next to the medical centre or at the Goolwa Wharf Precinct. These are open and available for public use. Works are expected to take two weeks to be complete.

Goolwa Wharf Recycling Project - Waste Less… Recycle More

Alexandrina Council working in partnership with Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority, Cittaslow Goolwa and Goolwa Tidy Towns has recently installed two trial public place recycling bin bank stations within the Goolwa Wharf Precinct.

The aim of the trial is to encourage members of the public to ‘Waste Less....Recycle More’ by sorting their waste and disposing it into the appropriate bins.

The public place recycling stations contain a general waste bin, recycling bin and 10c deposit bin for bottle and can recycling.

The stations will be in place over the summer holiday season.

Council and Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority will monitor contents to determine the success of the trial.

It is well known that a large percentage of waste going to landfill is recyclable and we can all do our bit by sorting our waste to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
