Council adopted the Mansfield Resource Recovery Centre (RRC) Masterplan at its meeting on 19 April 2022. The Masterplan outlines works required to upgrade the site to maximise resource recovery and minimise waste to landfill.

The Masterplan considers the risk to the environment of noise, odour, run off to stormwater, storage of hazardous materials, separation of combustible recyclables, and waste management, and aims to mitigate these risks through design.

Asbestos is a silicate mineral made up of tiny fibres that were used for a range of manufacturing products in Australia from as early as the 1920's until the 1980's. Exposure to the fibres may cause illnesses such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. The manufacture, supply, use, import, transport, storage and sale of all forms of asbestos was banned from 31 December 2003.

Asbestos is naturally found in the environment we live in. Asbestos can be found in two forms;

  • Friable: is loosely bound and is more likely to release fibres and is more of a health risk. 
  • Non-friable: is bound and less likely to release fibres unless it is damaged. 

Non-friable asbestos containing material is generally safe if it is not damaged and left undisturbed.  When it is disturbed by drilling, boring, cutting, grinding, sanding, breaking etc., it produces a dust that contains friable asbestos.

Illness development will depend on a range of factors including;

  • the level of exposure
  • the duration of exposure
  • fibre type
  • other environmental factors

Asbestos in the Home

Asbestos was used in a number of products over a considerable period of time.  It can be found in;

  • Roof tiles and insulation, 
  • Pipe and water tank insulation, 
  • Wall and floor paneling, ceilings, eaves
  • Outdoor sheds and 
  • Backing for vinyl flooring and can be found in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry, garage and garden shed.

It is difficult to tell whether a building material contains asbestos. The only way to be certain is to have a sample of the material tested in a NATA accredited laboratory. 
Materials containing asbestos are not dangerous if they are in good condition, undamaged, undisturbed and sealed.  

More information can be found on the Department of Health's Asbestos in the Home website


Removal and Disposal

Mansfield Shire Council does not accept Asbestos Materials.

The safest way to have asbestos removed is by a licensed asbestos removalist.  There are two types of removalists;

Class A - can remove both friable and non-friable asbestos containing material

Class B - can only remove non-friable asbestos containing material

Licensed asbestos removalists ensure that asbestos is removed and disposed of in a safe manner. 

Limited asbestos removal can only occur if;

  • It is non-friable
  • the area of asbestos containing material does not exceed 10 square meters
  • the total time the asbestos removal work performed is less than 1 hour total over 7 days
  • the person performing the removal work should be trained in removing asbestos safely.

Disposal of asbestos containing materials is controlled by the EPA and can only be disposed of at a licensed landfill site.

Commercial / Building Waste

What is it?

Commercial / Building Waste is solid waste from commercial, industrial, government or public premises. It can include building materials, timbers, plaster, rubble and other general waste.

Valuable materials such as metals and recyclable or re-usable components should not be included, but removed and recycled separately (this may reduce your charges and the amount of waste going to landfill). The remaining heavy residual waste goes straight into our landfill bin for transportation to the Benalla landfill.

We offer this service to provide a more convenient location for local builders and businesses to dispose of small amounts of commercial waste. It does not take the place of a landfill operation.

Price increase

The price to dispose of Commercial / Building Waste at the Resource Recovery Centre is $270 per cubic metre.  

Our waste services operate on a cost recovery model. This charge is necessary to recover the true cost of disposing of this waste stream.

Costs to dispose of waste to landfill have increased significantly over the past few years. Commercial / Building Waste in particular has very little resource recovery value, and is extremely heavy for our staff to handle and transport. In almost all cases we transport and dispose of it entirely at the Benalla landfill.

If our service is no longer useful for you, landfill disposal options are available in Benalla and Alexandra. Both facilities have weighbridges, which may help minimise your costs.
