Transfer stations

We run four Transfer Stations so our community can dispose of large items and waste that is not accepted in kerbside bins.

Our Transfer Stations are at Wangaratta, Markwood, Moyhu and Eldorado.

We encourage all customers to separate recyclable items from general waste to reduce waste going to landfill. Recyclable items are also free to dispose of so separating them from your general waste will save you money! You can find a full list of our disposal fees here
