Waste facilities open hours & fee changes from 1 July 2018

Segregate and save

As a part of the Waste Infrastructure Strategy we analysed each of our waste facilities to identify demand requirements including population and current transaction numbers. The new open hours below have been optimised to maximise service levels and balance costs to the community, particularly at times of low demand. Additionally, the way some fees are applied are changing to support recycling as a priority over landfill.

Fees apply for many types of waste. From 1 July, the way some of these fees are applied will be changing to encourage segregation of waste with an aim of reducing waste sent to landfill. Below is a few of the more often used examples, a link to all fees can be found below.

Domestic waste disposal fees

Free disposal

All types of waste up to 400kg is free. It is recommended that loads be sorted to minimise land fill.

  • Unsegregated general waste for landfill: $107 per tonne above 400kg.
  • Unsegregated general waste and clean recyclable/reusable items with no intention to recycle: $107 per tonne above 400kg.

From 1 July 2018, domestic waste fees will be based on a weight threshold of 400Kg per trip. Not many of us have a weigh bridge in our back yard so here are a few examples of some typical weights for domestic ute and trailer loads of waste.

Capacity of typical domestic vehicles

  • Typical style side ute loaded level with top = 1m3.
  • Trailer - 6x4 with 300mm sides = 0.65m3
  • Trailer - 7x4 with 300mm sides = 0.77 m3
  • Trailer - 7x5 with 300mm sides = 0.95 m3
  • Trailer - 8x5 with 300mm sides = 1.1 m3

Typical weight of different waste types

  • Greenwaste = 200kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer stacked 600mm high would be around 400kg.
  • Timber = 350kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer stacked a smidge over 300mm would be around 400kg.
  • General waste (mixed general domestic waste that is sent to landfill) = 350kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer stacked a smidge over 300mm would be around 400kg.
  • General waste & segregated clean recyclable materials with no intention to recycle = 350kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer stacked a smidge over 300mm would be around 400kg.
  • Soil = 850kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer filled to about 250mm would be around 400kg.
  • Bricks & masonry = 1,700kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer filled to about 125mm would be around 400kg.
  • Concrete = 2,000kg/m3. Eg: a ute or 7x5 trailer filled to about 75mm would be around 400kg.
