Residents are encouraged to sort their loads before they go to the waste transfer station.
Residents can save their money by making a few small changes to how they pack their load. The Wodonga Waste Transfer Station has different charges for different materials, so if an item can be recycled, repurposed or reprocessed it is cheaper to dispose of, and some materials are accepted for free.
If a load is not sorted, it can be difficult to see what types of materials are in the load. This means in some cases, the attendant can only charge the highest rate. This is why sorting your load before you leave home is so important.
Sorting can be as simple as putting all of the household recyclables together, flattening any large cardboard boxes, putting bricks and rubble together, and separating timber, metals, electronic waste and green waste.
By doing all of this, residents can help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill which ultimately helps our environment.
