Waste Disposal Sites and Fees
KINGBOROUGH WASTE MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Council operates two waste management facilities - a waste transfer station at Barretta (previously a landfill site) and a waste transfer station at Main Road, North Bruny.
The redevelopment of the Barretta site involved construction of a new state-of-the-art waste management facility that includes a Re-Use Shop, recycling and green waste areas and general refuse drop off points. Kingborough Waste Services is wholly owned by Kingborough Council and was established to run the state-of-the-art Barretta Waste Management Facility.
The site has been designed to ensure minimal traffic delays and to keep customers moving through the area with ease. The recycling area is easily accessible with ample parking allowing easy disposal of recyclables before crossing the weighbridge. The bins are large capacity and staff will be on hand to ensure that goods dropped off meet recycling standards. Items suitable for recycling include oil, batteries, glass bottles and jars, metal, timber, cardboard, paper and co-mingled which is plastic bottles and milk cartons.
The general refuse disposal area is made up of eight bays. Customers can dispose of their waste which will drop on to the walking floor. The 25 metre walking floor takes half an hour to move from one end of the bays to the other end where the compactor is located. Staff members will work at the end of the walking floor and recover items suitable for recycling or resale in the Re-Use Shop to reduce further items going to landfill.
Drivers are weighed as they cross the weighbridge after dropping off their recyclables. If they have general waste, the charge will be calculated when they leave the site.
Kingborough Waste Services has a website which provides customers with details on the site operations, fees and services.
