Resource Recovery Centres

Resource Recovery Centres (previously known as transfer stations and tips) allow residents to dispose of household waste and recyclables that are not appropriate for household bins. They also cater for commercial customers wishing to dispose of bulk loads of green organics, concrete and brick.


E-Waste Ban: From July 2019, all electronic items have been banned from landfills by the Victorian Government. This includes all electronic appliances, including phones, computers, TVs, whitegoods, electric power tools, and more. If it has a plug, battery, or cord, it is e-waste. These items are full of valuable resources that can be reused, and can also contain hazardous materials that need to be kept out of landfills.

To dispose of these items correctly, please take them to your local Resource Recovery Centre (see our locations on this page).

Where possible, Council provide disposal free of charge, while some items are accepted for a cost. Some hazardous materials, oils and other substances will not accepted at all.
