Waste Transfer Stations

Free Green Waste Disposal

There is currently free green waste disposal at St Helens, Scamander and St Marys every Sunday from 1 November to 28/29 February.

 

Council has six (6) Waste Transfer Stations:

  • St Helens
  • Scamander
  • St Marys
  • Ansons Bay
  • Fingal
  • Pyengana

 

There are also three (3) recycling stations at St Helens, Scamander and St Marys which are not manned, residents are invited to only leave items of some perceived value inside the stations (non-electrical). Gold coin donations for items taken are appreciated. Proceeds from the donations are distributed to local charities.

If the recycling stations are successful Council is planning to expand to other transfer sites in the municipality, in additon to this external secure areas for building materials and similar waste may be established.
