Waste Facilities

You know them as ‘tips’ and we call them transfer stations and landfills. 

Transfer stations are where you can take your rubbish and recyclables for transport to another location for processing or disposal. 

Landfills are where rubbish that cannot be recycled is disposed of by burying in carefully managed pits or cells. Our main landfill is located at Kilmany, and we have a smaller landfill at Maffra. Landfills are designed, built, operated and rehabilitated to meet strict Environment Protection Authority regulations to protect public health and the environment.


Our transfer stations and landfills are listed below. Operating hours, location and fees are available by clicking on the links:

Recycling for local domestic users is available at Toward Zero’s Sale depot. See our Recycling page for more information.


Tip Concessions

We provide exemptions from tip fees to a limited number of charitable and service organisations. Locally based organisations are able to access concessions for up to 10 cubic metres of waste per financial year, per organisation. Please note, individuals are not eligible to apply. If your organisation is already receiving support from Council you also will not be eligible.
