Fees and charges will come into effect for select items at the Watkins Road Waste Transfer Station and Recycling Centre next month.

As of Thursday, 2 September 2021, residents will incur a small fee when recycling the following items at the Transfer Station:


Fee and Charge

Tyres (passenger car and motorcycle)

$5 each

Tyres (SUV/four-wheel-drive)

$10 each

Mattresses (all sizes)

$20 each

These new charges are part of the Shire’s 2021/22 Fees and Charges schedule.

They do not cover the full cost required to recycle each item and are only a contribution to the total fee.

Payment for these items can be made on arrival to the facility. Payment must be made by card (no cash) and a receipt will be provided.
