Walliston Transfer Station Closed When Total Fire Ban Declared

12 January 2021 3:00 PM

With the extended hot weather and strong easterly winds of last week delivering multiple days of Total Fire Bans, the City of Kalamunda reminds residents the Walliston Transfer Station is closed when a Total Fire Ban is declared.

Total Fire Bans are set by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and are issued on days when weather conditions would make fires difficult to control or when there are a number of fires burning across the State, stretching firefighting resources.

Activities not permitted during a Total Fire Ban include any hot works such as grinding, welding, cutting or heating in the open air.

Also, on days when a Total Fire Ban is declared, the City’s Chief Bush Fire Control Officer can impose a Harvest and Vehicle Movement Ban.

To check if the City has declared a Harvest and Vehicle Movement Ban check the City's website or City's Facebook page, listen to ABC radio broadcasts or check the variable messaging boards located around the City.
