  • Household items and furnishings

About Council's Transfer Stations  

Central Goldfields Shire Council operates four transfer stations - Carisbrook, Talbot, Dunolly and Bealiba. 

Council’s Transfer Stations are for the deposit of waste, recycling, green waste and recoverable materials.

Waste that can’t be reused or recycled is transferred from these transfer stations to the Patho landfill at Echuca. 

The transfer stations are available for deposit of domestic quantities of waste materials only.

This means the Transfer Stations are unable to take commercial quantities of waste eg builders rubble as it is transported to another site.

Waste loads are limited to trucks/trailers of less than three cubic metres in volume.

To help us recycle, please load your trailer to allow separation of green waste and recyclables from other waste. Recyclable materials can be deposited free of charge.

Our policy is to recycle all we can to reduce what is sent to landfill.

Remember to cover and secure your load.

All Central Goldfields Shire Transfer Stations have material recovery capabilities. Customers can purchase deposited items that are reusable and the Carisbrook Transfer Station has a resale shop displaying all items for sale.
