The operation of the four transfer stations (commonly known as tips) is now being carried out by Solo Resource Recovery; however they are not available for commercial operators. All general enquiries should be directed to Solo Resource Recovery on 5633 2009.
You can deposit up to a maximum of three cubic metres of rubbish at our tips. Disposal fees vary depending on the type and quantity of rubbish you are disposing.
Our tips do not accept builders waste (bricks, concrete, soil, etc).
