Rural and regional waste transfer stations

The Handbook for the Design and Operation of Rural and Regional Transfer Stations aims to help councils understand the challenges, opportunities and unique issues associated with operating waste transfer stations.

This handbook features innovative and practical solutions adopted by rural and regional councils, as well as examples of current and future transfer station designs.

Waste transfer stations serve as a link between a solid waste collection program, a community recycling centre and a waste disposal facility. They play an important role in a community's total waste management system by providing an effective means of consolidating and managing recyclables and waste.
