What is a transfer station
A transfer station is a place that accepts and treats waste before bringing it to a landfill or recycling facility.
Waste collectors and the public can bring waste items not suitable for kerbside collection to transfer stations.
- garden waste
- household waste
- hazardous items
- scrap metal.
Check which items a transfer station accepts before you use their service.
You can also drop off many items at a community recycling centre. This includes, in many cases, green waste and general rubbish.
See How to get rid of unwanted items to get disposal options for specific items.
