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 6L 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.  
TRANSFER STATION GATEHOUSE FEES

The following fees apply as of 1 July 2019. We reserve the right to make necessary changes to fees and entitlements, and notify the community of these changes. 

Residents receive free access to the facility:

  • twice per annum with a car boot or single axle trailer (at water level or equivalent), or
  • once per annum with a van, ute or double axle trailer (at water level or equivalent)

Simply present your ID and rates notice.

Alternatively you can use your entitlements for a one at-call Hard waste collection service using both unused vouchers. 

Gate fees apply to further visits and to other types of vehicles such as larger trailers. Trucks are not permitted. The City of Melton's gate fees are reviewed each year and remain among the lowest  in metropolitan Melbourne.
