Mt Walton East Intractable Waste Disposal Facility

A permanent isolation facility for long term wastes.

The Mt Walton East Intractable Waste Disposal Facility is located approximately 480km northeast of Perth and is managed by the Building Management and Works division of the Department of Finance.

Intractable wastes do not have commercially viable recycling, reuse or disposal options. They include wastes that need time to breakdown and chemical wastes that are not readily destroyed. These wastes need long-term management. Intractable wastes can be permanently isolated at the facility to protect the community and the environment.

The operation of the facility is governed by the Minister for the Environment and requires a waste register database to be prepared, maintained and made publicly available.

Persons seeking information from the database or requiring further information about the facility should emailĀ
