Transfer Stations

All transfer stations and landfills are closed on Christmas Day, New Years Day, Good Friday, ANZAC Day (morning only) and Matariki . On all other public holidays all transfer stations are open for their normal hours of operation.

Note:  Council does not provide kerbside rubbish collection.

Note: At the Dannevirke Transfer Station, all domestic and green waste is no longer charged by vehicle or load size - it is now charged by weight. The weight is calculated by weighing all vehicles (including trailers) in and out of the facility, you will be charged on a per-tonne basis for the weight of the rubbish and green waste dropped off at the site.

For all information and fees and charges on our Transfer Stations and Landfills, download our brochure.
