Transfer Station Update
At Councils ordinary meeting for November the decision was made that commercial, industrial and all non-putrescible household waste will no longer be accepted at the Shire transfer stations from the 1st of March 2023. This temporary measure will ensure the Shire can determine a set of fees and charges that will accurately reflect the cost to process and dispose of these items off island. Fees and charges are envisaged to be implemented from 1 July 23 for all items requiring disposal off island.
The following items that will no longer be accepted include:
• Electrical items
• Metal or steel
• Commercial waste
• Solar panels
• Demolition and construction waste
• Light globes
• Printer cartridges
The below is a list of items that will be accepted. These items can be placed in your green rubbish bin or taken to the transfer station during opening hours.
• Household plastic packaging items e.g., shampoo, deodorant, cleaning, soft plastic
• Juice and milk cartons
• Kitchen waste
• Nappies and wipes
• Plastic, tin and steel food and drink packaging
• Sanitary products
• Textiles and clothing
• Cooking oil
Recycling will continue as normal. Please remember only aluminium cans are to go in the yellow bins and glass in the red bins.
