Dalby Washdown Facility Official Opening

13 January 2016

Western Downs Regional Council invites you to attend the official opening of the Heavy Vehicle Washdown Facility located at the Dalby Regional Saleyards @ Western Downs on Monday 18 January from 1pm.

  • Mayor Ray Brown and Councillors will join project partners to officially open the facility which came online late last year providing service to all vehicle types including large livestock transport vehicles, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week;
  • The facility marks a significant achievement for Council in meeting the objectives of its Regional Washdown Strategy through the completion of washdown facilities at Chinchilla, Wandoan and now Dalby;
  • Assisting in the prevention of weed seed spread, the new facility will help protect good quality agricultural land and reduce livestock manures and effluent spillage on roads including entry and exits from the Dalby Saleyards;
  • The facility will be closed between the hours of 6am and 5pm due to the official opening on Monday 18 January.

The Dalby Washdown Facility was funded by Western Downs Regional Council, with some funding received through the Dalby Saleyards Redevelopment Project Royalties for the Regions subsidy program.

If you wish to attend the official opening, please RSVP to Council’s Environmental Health department on 1300 COUNCIL.
