What we cannot accept?

The Waste Transfer Station does not accept asbestos or toxic chemicals (sulphuric acid, etc) or household chemical products. Detox Your Home chemical collection days are held in partnership with Sustainability Victoria. The next event will be in 2018-2019 and will be advertised via council communications channels when a date is confirmed.

The collection days enable you to dispose of potentially dangerous household chemicals and a number of targeted products safely and easily without harming human health or the environment. You will need to register for this event and the household chemicals that you wish to dispose of.

If you are unsure, please ring the transfer station prior to arrival.
