Accepted items and fees

Overview

We operate three Transfer Stations which sort material out into recyclable and non-recyclable streams for re-use or disposal to landfill.

Click on the headings above or the Next button below for a list of accepted items and associated fees.

Quick tip: Save time and money by sorting your waste into recyclables and non-recyclables before going to a transfer station. Most recyclables are free to drop off, so recycle as much as possible and save on fees. Secure your load to avoid debris falling onto the roads. Motorists who fail to secure their load may be fined.
