The Broome Waste Management Facility will take household rubbish for free for two weekends next month to help prepare the town for cyclone season.

The open weekends on 14-15 and 28-29 October are in addition to household green waste being accepted free at the Waste Management Facility throughout the year, and the issuing of six free passes each year to ratepayers.

The Waste Management Facility will be open 7.30am to 3.30pm on Saturdays and 8am to 2pm on Sundays. As this is a new system, those attending are asked to please be patient.  

The cost of the previous pre-cyclone kerbside collection system had risen considerably in recent years, and was no longer serving its primary purpose of removing items that posed a danger in a cyclone, with whitegoods, household furniture and other items making up the bulk of rubbish put out for collection.

Items eligible for free deposit:

  • White goods
  • Scrap iron, other waste metals and empty tins
  • Furniture and mattresses
  • E-waste
  • Household electrical items

 Items NOT eligible for free deposit:

  • Tyres, batteries and car parts
  • Gas bottles
  • Asbestos, oil, paint, liquid waste, chemical or hazardous waste
  • Commercial building materials
  • Flares
  • Fire extinguishers
