The all new Beverley Recycling and Waste Centre

Here's a good tip.

The $2.4million Beverley Waste Transfer Station redevelopment project was completed in 2018 and is now fully operational and open to the public.

The redevelopment aligned the centre to comply with EPA legislative requirements as well as Work Health and Safety requirements. There is a new disposal area, a “Sort n Save” recycling process, improved way finding, customer service and an increase in site safety.

The centre is now open to the public and can provide a range of waste services. For information on these services:

Reducing Flooding Port Road Drainage Project

 

 

Next Stage

The Port Road Drainage Project now complete with final works being completed on landscaping on the median. The City of Charles Sturt is focusing on the next area of flood mitigation – the Port Road median from Park Street South to Minnie Street.

These works would extend the benefits realised in the Port Road Drainage Project, and would be Stage 3 of the PRD Project.

Council is currently working with the Stormwater Management Authority in funding options, seeking in the order of $10million in grant funding with $18.5million already secure through the City of Charles Sturt Long Term Financial Plan. Scoping, procurement and execution of Stage 3 of the PRD is dependent on SMA funding, and will be confirmed in February 2019.

Project Information

In collaboration with the Stormwater Management Authority (SMA), Charles Sturt commenced work in January 2017. The Project will ensure that in a 1 in 100 year rainfall event, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital emergency entrance will remain accessible.

The Port Road Drainage Project installed underground drains in the Port Road central median between Old Port Road (Cheltenham) and Park Street South (Woodville), providing stormwater flood mitigation to suburbs of Albert Park, Cheltenham, Woodville West and Woodville in the Port Road stormwater catchment.

Once the drains were installed, we spent $4.67m to landscape the median once again, planting mature trees, trees and shrubs, as well as creating irrigated grass areas. Our aim was to ensure our replacement planting created an attractive and environmentally responsible area for decades to come.

Like the Water Proofing the West - Stage 1 (WPW) Project, the Port Road Drainage Project will have long term benefits for the community in mitigating the risk of flooding to the area.

The City of Charles Sturt has been working with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR), the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resource Management Board (AMLRNRMB) and the Stormwater Management Authority (SMA) for several years to provide a sustainable, non-potable water supply and reduced flood risks within the City of Charles Sturt area. We were successful in obtaining funding from various sources of Local, State and Australian Government for the Water Proofing the West - Stage One (WPW) Project.

The Port Road Drainage Project was just as exciting, providing a series of benefits for all local residents in the West. Council in consultation with the SMA Board agreed to focus only on the stormwater drainage and flooding components and to extend the proposed staging of the Project works to a scope that includes the area from the intersection of Old Port and Port Roads to Park Street South (east of Woodville Road).

Some benefits of the Port Road Drainage Project are:

  • Access to the QEH Emergency even in time of significant storm events
  • Reducing flood risk for private and business properties along Port Road
  • Reduce interruption to businesses due to flood risk
  • Reduced frequency of water flooding the Port Road carriageways during storm events
  • Channel more water in the Old Port Road water catchment which will improve the quality and allow for more water to be captured more water re-use is realised.
