Waste Transfer Stations Waste Transfer Stations


Places for Waste & Recycling

Transfer stations are places for waste which cannot be placed in normal weekly kerbside collections. While everyone is encouraged to reuse and recycle resources as much as possible, there are some items that still need to go to a disposal facility for their proper management.

Transfer stations also provide the residential community with a location to recycle:

  • Items which are no longer needed but are still usable by others (clothing, unbroken furniture and household goods, unbroken toys and sporting equipment);
  • Items which should not be placed in the kerbside bin as they are able to be recycled, such as:
    • clean plastic beverage containers
    • paper and cardboard
    • metal and metal products
    • wet cell batteries
    • used motor oil
    • tyres
  • Material which can be processed into a usable form such as greenwaste which can be mulched (trees, shrubs, untreated timber without metal; and clean concrete which can be processed into gravel for road base).  Please note greenwaste is not accepted at Murray Upper Transfer Station.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council has 7 waste transfer stations
