Transfer Stations​

Transfer stations accept general waste for landfill disposal. All general waste is transported to Victoria Flats landfill in the Gibbston Valley.​​ Fees are charged for disposal of general waste, the fees cover operating costs, landfill costs and a contribution towards waste minimisation programme costs.

Different fees apply depending on the type and separation of material. If the material can be diverted from landfill it generally has a lesser fee as the costs associated with it are less. It pays to separate material for reuse and recycling!​​ Key charges are below but a full list of fees & charges for Transfer Stations is available on page 3 of the document on our website's Fees & Charges page​.
