From Tuesday 3 August 2021 works will start to replace the Ballina Waste Management’s transfer station roof.
The Waste Management Centre will remain open during these works, however access to the waste transfer station public drop-off area will be closed for the duration of the works and a temporary public drop-off area will be available behind the administration building.
To avoid increased wait times or disruptions, Council asks residents to delay dropping off non-essential waste until the roofing works are complete and the transfer station is reopened. Instead, residents are encouraged to store their waste and drop it off once the works are complete.
Ballina Shire Council would like to thank the community for their patience and understanding during these works.
It is expected that works will be completed by the end of August 2021 (weather and site conditions permitting).
What is a transfer station?
The waste transfer station is an open-air shed located within the Ballina Waste Management Centre. The station is the key drop-off location for residents disposing of household quantities of rubbish, recycling and electronic waste. The Community Recycling Centre is also located at the transfer station, which accepts a range of common household hazardous wastes for free, such as batteries, paint, oil, ink cartridges and smoke detectors.
