Bruny Waste Transfer Station

KWS will accept green waste from Bruny Island residents at no cost during the above dates between the hours of 8:00am and 3:30pm at the Bruny Waste Transfer Station, P231 Main Road, North Bruny.

Green waste must be completely free of contaminants including general and hazardous waste, plastic and declared weeds.  Assistance on weed identification is available by contacting Council on (03) 6211 8200, Monday to Friday.  Detection of contaminated green waste may result in disposal fees being applied.

Residents are requested to follow directions of site staff and exercise patience as some minor delays may be experienced.  Enquiries relating to the program can be directed to Kingborough Waste Services on (03) 6267 2337.
