A local government truck facilities investment sees a Victorian council install a truck wheel wash unit at a landfill facility.

The Bass Coast Shire Council installed the $60,000 unit the Grantville Transfer Station as part of its 2020/21 Capital Works Program.

The new unit will remove debris from the wheels and undercarriage of vehicles that visit the landfill site before to returning to public roads.

With environmental considerations in mind, the project was recently completed in line with best practice landfill management.


Truck washes are often a contentious matter, especially in livestock transport


Bass Coast Shire mayor Brett Tessari says the build will help stop contaminants from entering the environment.

"The wheel wash is an effective solution to ensure dirt and waste do not leave the landfill site," Tessari says.

"Bass Coast’s beautiful environment is very important to Council and the community and this is just one more measure we can take to ensure it stays that way."
