How do the Transfer Stations work?

1. Customers using the Transfer Station are required to back onto the loading ramp.

2. Then deposit their rubbish directly into the steel bin.

3. Once the bin is full it is brought back to the Bathurst Waste Management Centre for emptying.

4. Bins are swapped over on a needs basis.

Residents in rural areas also benefit from increased recycling opportunities with co-mingled recycling bins available at transfer stations which will then be picked up from each site to be taken for collection and processing.
