Hints to Sort your Load and Save

Our Transfer Stations have different charges for different materials. Most are arranged to make recycling and resource recovery easy so we can keep as much waste as possible out of landfill. You can save money and time and help the environment by sorting your load before you leave home.

  • Pack your trailer so the attendant can easily see what is in your load
  • Separate items that cost from items that are free
  • Put the bigger items in first and pack smaller items in the gaps
  • Flatten cardboard boxes
  • Separate recyclable from non-recyclable
  • Separate general rubbish that can’t be recycled
  • Pack similar materials together, for example:
    • Household recyclables (bottles, cans, boxes)
    • Timber and wood
    • Metals and whitegoods
    • Tree branches, grass and prunings
    • Polystyrene
    • Electronic waste
    • Motor oil and batteries
