The Transfer Station accepts two types of "waste":

  • Household materials such as mattresses, green waste, e-waste, concrete, clean fill, timber, metals, engine/motor oil (household quantities in maximum 10L containers), tyres and kerbside commingled recyclables. These items are processed for specialist recycling where possible, or disposed of if necessary, in accordance with environmental and legislative requirements.
  • Household residual waste consists of materials that cannot be recycled. It is transported to the Melbourne Regional Landfill (MRL: also known as "the tip") in Ravenhall, owned and operated by waste company Cleanaway. Residual waste taken from our Transfer Station to the MRL is charged by volume, and is determined by transportation costs and the State Government landfill levy.

  • the Transfer Station can not accept toxic, contaminated or industrial waste including asbestos and chemicals.
  • loads more than three cubic metres will be charged in tonnage rate only.
