The intent of this great initiative is to provide all CGVC residents with the opportunity to improve the general amenity of our beautiful region and keep our properties, roads and streets free of excess clutter. The free access is restricted to household amounts (utility/small box trailer/ute or boot load) and will be administered by the introduction of a card identification system for ratepayers/residents to access either facility.

Larger quantities or commercial loads will still attract the usual fees as per the table below for business rates.

Ensure your load is properly secured before you leave your property so refuse is not discarded on the trip.

Rules & Conditions

1 All loads need to be segregated before entering the Transfer Station
2 Waste to be unloaded as directed by the attendant
3 Free dumping limited to household amounts (utility/small trailer/ute load/boot load)
