Mindarie Regional Council is committed to ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all persons on MRC’s premises including staff, contractors and visitors.

Through a process of continuous improvement we are committed to challenging all safety aspects of our operations in our journey towards creating an injury and incident free workplace. 

Communication and education are essential to the safety of all persons in overcoming the challenges posed by operating a sustainable and environmentally friendly waste management facility. 

MRC welcomes input from all parties in achieving our goal of safely collaborating for a regional Circular Economy.
