You can deposit up to three cubic metres of rubbish at our transfer stations. Disposal fees vary depending on the type and quantity of rubbish you are disposing.
Our transfer stations are not available for commercial operators and do not accept builders waste (bricks, concrete, soil, etc).
You must secure your load before visiting the tip as a penalty under the Environment Protection Act 1970 will apply for litter generated from your vehicle.
Council has recently installed glass separation skip bins at the Lardner and Trafalgar Transfer Stations, allowing residents to dispose of their glass in a practical and effective way.
The glass separation bins will improve the quality of glass collected and reduce glass breakage contaminating other recyclables in the commingled recycling bins. The new skip bins will also allow bulk transport of the glass to our processors, and future separation of specific glass colours in the bin compartments to individual processors.
For assistance in disposing of your glass or any other items, the transfer station staff will be very happy to help.
Paint tins (but not chemical containers) are accepted at each of our transfer stations at very nominal fees. Empty paint tins are free.
Mattresses are accepted for a fee of $25 for single and $37.50 for double/queen/king size. Mattress bases are also accepted for a fee of $25 for single and $37.50 for double/queen/king size.
A list of items that can be recycled and deposited free of charge at our tips is included in our Transfer Station Information Guide which is available from our customer service centre, at the transfer stations, or can be mailed out upon request.
Most recyclables can be deposited free of charge at our transfer stations (except green organics). Your costs can be reduced significantly by separating your recyclables from other waste – place your recyclables in individual containers separate from your other waste (or clearly separate them in your load). This makes it much easier for the transfer station staff to assess your load and charge only for your waste.
Asbestos is not accepted at our tips. For more information about disposal of Asbestos in your area, visit the Environmental Protection Authority website or call 1300 372 842. For more information about disposal of contaminated soils, contact Gippsland Water on 1800 050 500.
A free annual "at call" kerbside hard waste collection service or free transfer stations drop off is available to residents . This service replaced the hard waste vouchers previously issued with rates notices.
