Wagait Tip remediation

The Northern Territory and Australian Governments have committed to the remediation of the former Wagait Tip site.

The former Wagait Tip is located on Commonwealth land, in the north of Cox Peninsula Road approximately 3km south of Wagait Beach Township and approximately 9.5 km north of Belyuen community.

The Wagait Tip was used for unauthorised waste disposal from 1988 until it was closed in November 2015.

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics will project manage the remediation. This is expected to be carried out by early 2021.

The remediation is also part of the Kenbi Land Claim settlement arrangements.

Once remediated, the Australian Government will be handing over the site to the Larrakia Development Corporation as part of the Kenbi Land claim agreement.
