Minor upgrade works at the Castlemaine transfer station over the coming months will bring temporary changes to waste drop-off procedures.
The works will include new boundary fencing to better contain litter, new railing on the rubbish drop wall to protect people and upgrades to the existing retaining wall.
A new concrete slab also will be poured in the waste drop area to reduce the potential contamination of recyclables.
The existing drainage network will be upgraded to improve the quality of runoff water, and improvements will be made to traffic management and signage.

Mount Alexander Shire Council advises that the transfer station will operate during normal operating hours, but certain areas will be blocked to the public and temporary drop-off procedures will be implemented.
The works are expected to be completed in October.
Members of the public who attend the transfer station during this time are asked to follow signs and instructions from staff.
Anyone wanting further information can contact the council on 5471 1700.
