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.

This includes:

  • garden waste
  • household waste
  • hazardous items
  • scrap metal.

Check which items a transfer station accepts before you use their service.

See How to get rid of unwanted items to get disposal options for specific items.
